Old fashioned

The Old Fashioned is a cocktail made by muddling sugar with bitters, then adding alcohol, such as whiskey or brandy, and a twist of citrus rind.



  • 1 sugar cube
  • 3 dashes Bitters — Angostura bitters
  • club soda
  • 2 ounces whiskey — rye whisky
  • old-fashioned glass



  • Place the sugar cube (or 1/2 teaspoon loose sugar) in an Old-Fashioned glass.
  • Wet it down with 2 or 3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a short splash of water or club soda.
  • Crush the sugar with a wooden muddler, chopstick.
  • Rotate the glass so that the sugar grains and bitters give it a lining.
  • Add a large ice cube.
  • Pour in the rye (or bourbon).
  • Serve with a stirring rod.
