1878 Whiskey Cocktail

The recipe I am presenting here is an old whisky cocktail I found in Leo Engels 1878 book, American and Other Drinks. In his book, Leo simply calls the recipe a Whisky Cocktail, and I suspect is is close to the original version of what we today call, the Old Fashioned Cocktaill.

His recipe uses lemon peel instead of orange, and asks us to shake and strain the ingredients rather than serving over ice.
