How to Make a Old Fashioned

The original definition of a cocktail written in 1806 was “a potent concoction of spirits, bitters, water, and sugar.” This is the Old Fashioned, the original cocktail. Try subbing other spirits like rum, brandy, or an aged tequila in place of the whisky. The Old Fashioned is the perfect drink to begin experimenting.
