"Whiskey Old-Fashioned" actually refers to two cocktails. One consists of whiskey, sugar, bitters, ice and a lemon peel. The better-known, fancier version of the drink, made with muddled orange and a cherry, is listed as "Old Fashioned No. 2" in the 1934 edition of "Cocktail Bill" Boothby's World Drinks and How to Mix Them.

In a cocktail shaker, muddle one orange wheel with 3 cherries, the Simple Syrup and the bitters. Add ice and the bourbon and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Stir in the club soda and garnish with the remaining orange wheel and cherry skewered on a pick.
