Place a sugar cube in a short glass and add a few dashes of angostura bitters to soak.

Muddle until dissolved.
Use a muddler to press down on the sugar cube and dissolve it in the angostura bitters.

Fill the glass with ice cubes.

Pour in Bourbon.
Using a jigger, measure 50ml Bourbon and pour into an Old Fashioned glass.
