ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

What Is An Old Fashioned Cocktail?

An Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail that typically consists of bourbon, sugar, bitters, and a twist of orange peel. It is often served in a short glass over ice and garnished with an orange slice. The drink dates back to the early 19th century and is known for its simplicity and strong, timeless flavour.

History Of The Cocktail

The origins of the Old Fashioned are somewhat disputed, but it is believed to have originated in the United States, possibly as early as the late 1700s. It is said to have been popularised in the mid-1800s as a way to enjoy the flavour of whisky without diluting it too much.

The Old Fashioned was originally known as a whiskey cocktail and was one of the first cocktail recipes ever recorded. It was included in the first cocktail book published in America, "The Bar-Tender's Guide" by Jerry Thomas in 1862.

The drink gained popularity during the Prohibition era in the 1920s when the quality and availability of alcoholic beverages were limited. A well-made Old Fashioned became a symbol of expertise and craftsmanship in mixing cocktails.

Over the years, the Old Fashioned has remained a revered classic that has withstood the test of time. In the 20th century, some variations of the drink emerged, such as using a sugar cube instead of simple syrup or muddling the sugar with the bitters. However, purists argue that the true Old Fashioned should stick to the original recipe of whiskey, sugar, bitters, and a citrus twist.
