The Old Fashioned
The Old Fashioned is a cocktail that has origins as far back as 1806. At the time a "cocktail" referred to a mix of a base spirit, bitters, water, and sugar. As cocktail recipes evolved and became more complex, drinkers thirsty for this simpler concoctions would ask for their cocktails to be made "Old Fashioned".
Today we most commonly think of an "Old Fashioned" as a whiskey drink, but they are delicious with any base. By modifying the spirit, sweetener, bitters, or all three we can create a cocktail that is truly signature to you, or keep it classic and classy with whiskey, Angostura bitters, and simple syrup. Whatever you choose this tried and true formula is sure to be a hit with your guests!
