How to make an Old Fashioned

HOW TO MAKE AN OLD FASHIONED COCKTAIL: STEP BY STEP

Call us old fashioned, but you can’t beat a classic. We think it’s time you learn how to make this classic at home.

Follow the below instructions, watch the video and give it a try. Worst case scenario, pop on down and we’ll serve one for you. Theatre included.

The Old Fashioned is concocted by muddling sugar with bitters, adding whiskey with a twist of citrus rind garnish.

You’ll need:

Now, let’s get to it:

  1. Grab your old fashioned glass and add 2 x teaspoons of the sugar
  2. Add a dash of bitters
  3. Twist your orange rind to release (or activate) the juice and pop the rind into the mixture
  4. Next, add 25ml of bourbon whiskey
  5. Add an ice cube and stir
  6. Repeat: add another 25ml bourbon whiskey, ice & stir
  7. Repeat step 6
  8. For the final time, repeat step 6. So, you have used your full 60ml of bourbon whiskey
  9. Add ice to your main serving glass
  10. Then strain your mixture over ice
  11. Twist another orange rind, pop it in and serve
