Old Fashioned | Cocktail Party

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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
