Classic Old Fashioned - Vanity M. - District Cash Support
Why I Love This Recipe
It is true; the Old Fashioned is the original cocktail. It is an essential and the variations are almost endless. The cocktail is made by muddling sugar with bitters, adding whiskey or, less commonly, brandy, and garnishing with a twist of citrus rind and a cocktail cherry. It is traditionally served in an old fashioned glass, which predated the cocktail.
