OLD FASHIONED

old fashioned

The Old Fashioned is the original cocktail, dating back to 1806. It was initially an “eye-opener” or morning drink. It has evolved greatly over time, but this is the most simple and basic preparation of the classic, which should be made with pride and reverence. Forget about muddling orange slices and radioactive red cherries in the glass…leave them out altogether and let the Whiskey sing!
