Old Fashioned Cocktail 1 Jul 2013
2:32 pm

For an Old Fashioned - Old Fashioned, try a rye whiskey like our forefathers used. Old Overholt is an acceptable entry level rye. I buy it by the case as my parents, my in-laws (parents and siblings), and my husband and me all like Old Fashioneds as I make them. I keep some business cards in my wallet with an acceptable Old Fashioned recipe to help out young bartenders. “NO SODA, don’t muddle the cherry (it only makes a mess as there are no essential oils like in an orange peel), use Angostura bitters for my taste, rye whiskey if possible - otherwise bourbon”.
