The Old Fashioned Cocktail
The name says it all. Its simply a cocktail which was simply made in the old days. It has undergone numerous variations, but the original is the most simple and the best recipe and can mask even the worst of whiskey.
- 1.5 ounces or 50ml of Bourbon
- Teaspoon and/or 1 packet of sugar
- Splash of club soda
- Angostura Bitters
- Garnish with Orange slice and/or a Maraschino cherry
In a mixing glass, take a teaspoon of sugar, sugar cube and/or packet of sugar and dissolve in a splash (a splash, not a glass) of club soda. Add bitters, whiskey and stir well over ice. Once cool, strain into a new old fashioned glass and add one large ice cube.
