How to make an Old Fashioned Cocktail at Home:

There is so much attention on the different recipes behind this cocktail. But when making cocktails, Old Fashioned included, at home, we find the principles of sticking to the absolute basics, is always the correct way to go.

-50ml Bourbon, or Whisky. Whatever is to hand.

-Half a teaspoon of Sugar, Brown is best, but again, whatever you have works.

-Dash of Angostura Bitters (this stuff keeps for YEARS & is a great staple to any cupboard)

-Piece of Orange Peel (for zesting, extracting the oil from the skin)

This is it. You have enough to create the bare bones of the Old Fashioned Cocktail.

There are so many variations, accentuations & spin offs of this cocktail recipe. We shall cover a few of these later.

The method of this drink, is to muddle the bitters with the sugar together, add the liquid ingredients & stir until dilution & temperature is reached. No need to complicate it.
