Old Fashioned

Old fashioned cocktail with bourbon and aromatic bitters

It’s called an “Old Fashioned” because it’s the literal definition of what a cocktail used to be: a healthy pour of spirit, a bit of syrup, and couple dashes of bitters. No mushed-up fruit, no soda: just Platonic perfection in a glass.

The classic Old Fashioned recipe calls for bourbon, rye or blended whiskey, simple syrup, and aromatic bitters. That said, it’s an endlessly flexible template – mix and match brown spirits, syrup, and bitters to your heart’s delight.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add the ingredients to a glass (an Old Fashioned glass is best, of course) and stir with one ice cube (we want to get a bit of melt action going). Add more ice cubes, and garnish with a cherry or a lemon twist.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
