Old-Fashioned

  • TOTAL TIME:
  • SERVINGS: Makes 1

According to cocktail historian David Wondrich, the old-fashioned is a direct descendant of the earliest known “true” cocktail, which in 1806 consisted of “a little water, a little sugar, a lot of liquor and a couple splashes of bitters.” While it’s not traditional, some bartenders muddle a cherry into the drink or add one as garnish.


Ingredients

  1. 2 ounces bourbon

  2. 1/4 ounce Rich Simple Syrup

  3. 2 dashes of Angostura bitters

  4. Ice

  5. 1 orange twist

  6. 1 brandied cherry, skewered on a pick, for garnish (optional)

  1. In a mixing glass, combine the bourbon, Rich Simple Syrup and bitters. Fill the glass with ice, stir well and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Pinch the orange twist over the drink, add it to the glass and garnish with the skewered cherry.
