Add the honey, warm water and bitters to an old fashioned glass then stir until the honey has dissolved. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add your chosen whiskey. Give this a quick stir then twist the orange slice over the cocktail to express the oils and juice then drop it into the drink. Garnish with the cocktail cherry and serve.
*I used Bulleit “95” Rye Small Batch Frontier Whiskey.
** I prefer to use locally sourced honey when making a plain honey simple syrup.
