A Very Bourbon Xmas: The Old Fashioned

For the second day of our Very Bourbon Christmas, we’re going to be showing you how to make an Old Fashioned!

An old fashioned was one of the simpler and earlier versions of cocktails, before the development of advanced bartending techniques and recipes in the later part of the 19th century.

Old Fashioned


● 1/2 teaspoon sugar
● 3 dashes Angostura bitters
● 1 teaspoon water

1. Add the sugar and bitters to a rocks glass, then add water, and stir until sugar is nearly dissolved.
