Old Fashioned Cocktail

Old Fashioned Cocktail

The Old Fashioned is an aromatic mix of sugar, bitters and bourbon with a twist of citrus. This classic drink is best served in a short tumbler, with plenty of ice (solid, not crushed). The perfect slow drink when the nights draw in.

cocktail recipe

Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz Bourbon, 2 dashes Angostura bitters , 1 sugar cube, few dashes plain water, juice and zest of an orange, ice.

  • Place the sugar in a glass and saturate with bitters 
  • Crush the sugar in the glass until it is fully dissolved
  • Add the whisky and a single ice cube
  • Mix together 
  • Add some more ice
  • Mix again and and add more ice 
  • Squeeze an orange into the liquid
  • Mix again thoroughly 
  • Finally add more ice and garnish with an orange twist

  • To create an orange twist, slice a wedge from the orange, peel away with the knife and twist the skin over the drink so that the oils from the orange rest on top. This adds to the aroma.
  • Warm the inside of the orange with a lighter to loosen the oil and squeeze into the drink. For a more intense twist set light to the orange and drop into the drink.
  • Soak the sugar in the Angostura Bitters before decanting into the glass for a more even and easier distribution.
