Old Fashioned Cocktail

Recipe by  

"The earliest version of this cocktail was simply water, sugar, bitters, and booze. Over time, the water became ice, the booze became whiskey, and the drink became an old fashioned."

I don't have sugar cubes, so I had to wing the amount of sugar to muddle with the bitters. I used Jack Daniel's, and this made my husband very happy! Thanks!
