ORIGINALLY FASHIONED Thursday, June 12, 2014
The Old Fashioned is the original cocktail, the original gentleman’s drink.
And thanks, in part, to our vested revivalist bartending brethren who’ve been stirring this cocktail up for the last decade-plus, the Old Fashioned now enjoys its rightful place in the pantheon of classic cocktails: at the top, natch.
We build ours by muddling an orange slice with some orange and Angostura bitters. Then we add two fingers of Wild Turkey’s Russell’s Reserve and a dash of Luxardo Maraschino Cherry Liqueur.
Strain it all over one jumbo ice cube and spritz it with a mist of absinthe, and there you have it: the drink that really put real drinking on the map. And OG drink for OG OGs.
Propose your next toast with one, and taste for yourself the Old Fashioned’s slow, steady means to endure.
