Original Old Fashioned Instructions
The Original Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail that has been enjoyed for centuries. It is a simple and elegant drink that is perfect for sipping on a lazy afternoon or as an after-dinner treat. Made with just a few ingredients, this cocktail is easy to make and a delight to drink.
To make the Original Old Fashioned, start by muddling a sugar cube with a few dashes of Angostura bitters in an old-fashioned glass. Muddling involves crushing the sugar cube and bitters together to release their flavors. Once the sugar cube is well mashed, add a splash of water to dissolve the sugar.
Next, add a few ice cubes to the glass and pour in a measure of bourbon or rye whiskey. Stir gently to combine the ingredients. The ice will help to chill the cocktail and dilute it slightly, creating a smooth and balanced drink. Feel free to adjust the amount of whiskey to suit your preference for a stronger or milder cocktail.
Finally, garnish your Original Old Fashioned with a twist of orange peel. To do this, simply take a piece of orange peel and twist it over the drink, releasing the oils and rubbing the peel along the rim of the glass. This will add a subtle citrus aroma and flavor to the cocktail.
Now, it's time to sit back, relax, and savor the flavors of your Original Old Fashioned. The combination of the bitters, sugar, whiskey, and orange peel creates a drink that is both smooth and complex. It's the perfect cocktail for those who appreciate the classics and enjoy the finer things in life.
So why not give the Original Old Fashioned a try? It's a timeless cocktail that is sure to impress your friends and elevate your cocktail game. Cheers!
