2 oz rye whiskey
1 oz sweet vermouth
Dash of bitters

This makes a Manhattan.

Add a generous splash of water to make a Sandy.

My favorite recently has been the "Old Fashioned". Anywhere I go, everyone messes it up, so I decided to perfect my own. I looked at several recipes and modified this one to make it a bit simpler and make it my own. The result I like best so far (and what my test subjects/friends have preferred) is this:

OLD FASHIONED


INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • .5 oz Cold water
  • 2 oz rye whiskey
Garnish: Lemon or orange rind

Glass: Rocks

PREPARATION:
In a rocks glass, muddle sugar, bitter and the water. Add the whiskey and a large ice cube. Twist slices of lemon and orange peel over the drink and drop them in.

It's simple, requires only two real ingredients (lemons and sugar are too easy to obtain to be a real concern) and it's a delicious drink with some kick and flavor.

What do you make?

EDIT: I thought it'd be nice to compile actual suggestions in one post:
I had a muddled old fashioned when I was in TN at a bar. The first few sips were good, but then the drink was way too sweet for my liking.

I've yet to have one at a bar that was good. Except for the place the above recipe actually came from.

They may have done it different. I've seen where a cherry gets muddled in with the rest of the ingredients and it makes for a sweeter drink. I always ask that they not muddle in any fruit when I order. I also usually get a Back label old fashioned

I can't say I've ever had one that was too sweet, normally if it's wrong then they don't have enough sugar/bitters and all you taste is the bourbon.

There's a place near where my parents live that can usually make a good one, and I had a few over the weekend at my cousin's rehearsal dinner that were great. I asked one of the bartenders for one and she referred me to an older lady working the bar who killed it, easily one of the best I've had.

Awesome thread, here are some of my favorites:
Top Shelf Margarita:
-1.5 oz fresh mexican (key) lime juice
-3 oz tequila of choice (I usually use herradura or cazadores)
-1 oz cointreau
-small squirt of agave nectar

shake all ingredients with crushed ice in shaker, strain into iced glass.

Basil Gimlet:
-1 oz basil infused simple syrup (see below)
-2 basil leaves
-1.5 oz gin
-1.5 oz fresh squeezed lime juice

combine ingredients in iced shaker, strain into chilled glass, top with seltzer water if desired
for simple syrup: bring equal parts sugar and water to boil, add fresh basil leaves, let cool

Whiskey Sour:
-3 oz whiskey (usually use Bulleit)
-1.5 oz lemon juice
-1 oz simple syrup

shake ingredients with ice, strain into chilled glass

Painkiller:
-2 oz pineapple juice
-2 oz orange juice
-1 oz cream of coconut
-3 oz+ dark rum (usually use pussers, cruzan, or 151)

stir juices together, measure rum into iced glass, add mixer and stir. if you don't want to mess around with cream of coconut, use half coconut infused rum and half dark rum
