One of our favourite classics, the Old Fashioned is basically a glass of booze sweetened with sugar and seasoned with Bitters. So grab a glass, an once or two of Bourbon, a sugar cube and a dash or so of Angostura and Orange Bitters and experience this classic for yourself.
Place sugar cube in an Old Fashioned glass, then add a few dashes of Angostura and water before muddling. Add Bourbon and ice and stir to chill.

The first use of the name “Old Fashioned” for a Bourbon whiskey cocktail was said to have been at the Pendennis Club, a gentlemen’s club founded in 1881 in Louisville, Kentucky.
