There is nothing quite like a classic cocktail - The Old Fashioned

They are steeped in history and often reflect the time period in which they were created. One such cocktail is the Old Fashioned. It quickly gained popularity and has remained a favorite among cocktail enthusiasts ever since. This Prohibition-era drink has become even more popular in recent years, and for a good reason – it is delicious and timeless. However, in order to make this iconic cocktail, youll need to use the right ratios and use the proper tools.

We've added a modern twist to the classic cocktail by adding the flavour of smoke too.  

First, lets look at the ingredients needed for The Old Fashioned. Youll need:

  • 2 tsp sugar syrup 
  • 60ml of bourbon or rye whiskey
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Angostura bitters
  • Orange Peel to garnish 

You’ll want to measure these ingredients precisely using our Cocktail Mixology Kit.

Step 1: Add ice to a low ball glass and set aside. 

Step 2: In the cocktail mixer, add the sugar syrup, bitters and bourbon into a cocktail shaker. Stir to combine. 

Step 3: Pour the cocktail into your low ball glass and enjoy! 

(Optional step - for smoked cocktail!) 

Step 4: Place your cocktail smoker on top, add the wood chips and light up. Place the smoker lid on top and let the smoke sit for a couple of minutes. Remove smoker and enjoy!

Surround yourself with friends and loved ones and enjoy the conversations with a delicious old fashioned!
