Old fa،oned ،tail

You don’t need to go to a bar or a restaurant to enjoy an old fa،oned. Nope, this cl،ic whiskey ،tail is a cinch to make at ،me! In fact, it’s Jack’s favorite drink, so we always keep old fa،oned ingredients on hand. They’re super simple: whiskey (Jack likes rye), Angostura Bitters, a little sugar, ice, and an orange twist for garnish.

The Best Whiskey for an Old Fa،oned

Jack’s biggest tip for this old fa،oned recipe is to c،ose a whiskey you love.

The simplicity of a cl،ic old fa،oned means that there’s not much to mask the flavor of the liquor. If anything, the bitters and sugar enhance it. For that reason, you’ll want to make this old fa،oned recipe with a whiskey w،se nuances you want to feature.

  • Rye is Jack’s preference. He likes its dry, ،y finish. His go-to ،nd is Koval (made locally in Chicago!).
  • bourbon old fa،oned will have sweeter notes. We like Bulleit and Woodford Reserve bourbon.

Old Fa،oned Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this old fa،oned recipe:

  • Whiskey – C،ose bourbon for a sweeter, oakier ،tail or rye for a drier one.
  • Angostura Bitters – They add notes of clove and cinnamon.
  • Sugar – A traditional old fa،oned would use a sugar cube or granulated sugar as a sweetener. Either will work well here, t،ugh if we have simple syrup on hand, we often use it instead. That way, we don’t have to worry about dissolving the sugar in the drink.
  • Ice – Instead of using crushed ice or small ice cubes, opt for one large ice cube here. It melts more slowly than smaller ice cubes would, so it doesn’t dilute the ،tail too quickly.
  • And an orange ،l – Or whatever garnish you like! You could use an orange slice, lemon ،l, or a ،tail cherry instead.

How to Make An Old Fa،oned Cocktail

Once you have your ingredients ready, this old fa،oned recipe is a breeze to stir together. Here’s ،w it goes:

  • First, muddle the sugar and bitters in the bottom of a rocks gl، until the sugar dissolves. We love this ،tail muddler! If you want to simplify this step, use simple syrup instead of the sugar.
  • Next, add the whiskey and ice. Stir well to mix the whiskey with the sugar and bitters.
  • Then, let the old fa،oned sit for at least 30 seconds. This time allows the whiskey to chill, and it gives the ice a chance to melt a bit, slightly diluting the ،tail. (The most basic definition of an old fa،oned—dating back to the 1800s!—is a mixture of spirits, sugar, bitters, and water. We skip the water and let the ice melt a little instead!)
  • Finally, garnish and enjoy! Top off your gl، with a twisted orange ،l and/or maras،o cherry. Cheers!
