  2. 3 dashes of Angostura bitters
  3. 1/4 ounce chilled club soda
  4. Ice
  5. 2 ounces bourbon
  6. 1 lemon or orange twist, for garnish
  1. In a chilled rocks glass, combine the sugar cube, bitters and club soda and muddle to a paste. Add ice and the bourbon and stir well. Garnish with the twist.
