The “Old Fashioned” is the quintessential cocktail for gentlemen. Everyone generally uses the same ingredients, however, I claim my way as the best and my friends agree.

What you’ll need for an Old Fashioned

  • 1.5 ounces of Bourbon or Rye
  • 3 dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • 1 Maraschino Cherry
  • 1 Orange slice and peel
  • Just under half ounce of Simple Syrup

My little twist is that I like to actually use the cherry as an ingredient of the drink, rather than just a garnish. Because of this, use a bit less simple syrup so the drink doesn’t come out too sweet. Also, I like to add a few drops of orange. Impress your friends, cheers.
