The Old Fashioned cocktail is old-school but never out of fashion.
Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass.
Muddle to break down the sugar and stir briefly.
Fill with ice, stir again and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
Twist slices of lemon and orange peel over the drink and drop them in.

Both garnishes have a long history—the use of orange and cherry dates back to just after World War I—but a lemon peel was used even before that.
Many mixology bars prefer a lemon and orange peel garnish over the cherry. I'm curious which is more historically considered "classic."
