The first Old Fashioned dates back to the beginning of the 1800s and was really nothing more than whiskey, sugar cube and bitters. We’ve pretty much kept to that original formula here but have added a touch of orange just to give it a little more character. To find out more, take a look on our video page at the “Old Fashioned Cocktail”.
1. Twist the orange peel in the glass and coat with the flavor.
2. Add the angostura bitters and simple syrup and coat the glass again.
3. Add the rye and top with ice.
