Old Fashioned


There’s something wonderful about the Old Fashioned. We don’t know exactly where the word “cocktail” came from, but there’s some evidence that it was first used in reference to this drink.

The original recipe calls for a sugar cube, but I don’t know many people who regularly stock sugar cubes in their pantry. I choose to use simple syrup because it’s easy and quick to make, most people have granulated sugar on hand at any time, and it mixes into the drink better.

In our recipe, I’m using Angostura Bitters to get a more classic flavor. Feel free to play around and use different bitters to change the flavor.
