Cocktail of the Month: Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned is by far one of my favorite cocktails to drink. It is my go to cocktail when I am trying out a new bar. The cocktail is very simple to make and every bartender should be able to make one.

The recipe for the cocktail is:

  • 4.5 cL (1.5 U.S. fl oz) Bourbon or Rye whiskey

  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters

  • 1 sugar cube

  • Few dashes plain water

Place sugar cube in old fashioned glass and saturate with bitters, add a dash of plain water.Muddle until dissolved.Fill the glass with ice cubes and add whiskey.Garnish with orange twist, and a cocktail cherry.

I prefer to have the cocktail with bourbon. I feel it has a better flavor than with whiskey.
