Old-Fashioned Cocktail Recipe

As the name suggests, Old-Fashioned is a very old cocktail made with bourbon or whiskey, fine sugar or a sugar cube, Angostura bitters, Maraschino cherries, orange slices, and a splash of club soda or water.

The cocktail is prepared by muddling the bitters, sugar, cherries, an orange slice, and soda or water in an old-fashioned glass.

After the fruit husks are removed, bourbon and ice are added to the combination, and the whole thing is stirred, then garnished with a cherry and an orange slice.

It is believed that the first Old-Fashioned was created at the Pendennis Club in Louisville, when it was made with whiskey, bitters, water, ice, and a sugar cube.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

4.5 cl (45 ml) Bourbon or rye whiskey

2 dashes Angostura bitters

1 sugar cube

few dashes plain water

GARNISH

orange slice

cocktail cherry

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON OLD-FASHIONED COCKTAIL RECIPE

Add a sugar cube to the glass then hit it with two dashes of Angostura bitters and a dash of water.

Mash with a muddler until dissolved, then add the ice cubes and pour in the whiskey or Bourbon. Stir to combine.

Squeeze the orange peel over the glass to express some oil, then place it in the cocktail and add a maraschino cherry.

Optionally, you can rub the rim of the glass with the peel once you’ve expressed it.
