DOW: Old Fashioned

>> Saturday, June 19, 2010

We thought we'd try another classic drink. The Old Fashioned has been around for about 200 years.

  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar (or a sugar cube)
  • 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • club soda (or water)
  • 2 oz whisky

Put sugar in an old-fashioned glass. Add bitters and crush sugar, spreading around the sides of the glass. Pour in a splash of club soda. Then add the whisky and stir.

Obviously, from the recipe, this drink is not for wimps. And please, please do not use high quality bourbon, scotch or whisky. Those don't need extra ingredients, just add a little water or ice and you're all set.

EDIT (Aug. 6): As you can see from the photograph, I forgot to add that it should be served with an ice cube.
