Happy Hour | The Old Fashioned
The classic Old Fashioned was originally created in Louisville, Ky., in the 1880s by a bartender at the Pendennis Club. It’s definitely one of the original All-American cocktails.
The Old Fashioned
- 1 ½ oz Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon
- 1 cube of sugar (or a splash of simple syrup)
- Splash of water
- 2 dashes bitters
- 2-3 ice cubes
- Twist of lemon
- One Maraschino cherry
- Slice of orange
In an Old Fashioned glass or tumbler, place a sugar cube or use simple syrup as a substitute. Add bitters and just enough water to help dissolve the sugar. Crush or muddle the sugar in the glass and coat the bottom of the glass. Add 2-3 ice cubes and bourbon. Garnish with a lemon twist, or if you’d like, a slice of orange and a cherry.
