Original Old Fashioned Whiskey Cocktail

Posted by Alayne Gardner-Carimi on

The cocktail that started it all. This particular (and rather unremarkable) recipe appeared alongside the first-ever printed use of the word “cocktail” way back in 1806.

Ingredients (serves 1)
2 oz. vomFASS Rye Whiskey
1 cube or ½ tsp sugar
1 Tbsp water

2-3 dashes Angostura Bitters 
Combine the sugar, bitters and water in an old fashioned glass. 

Crush the sugar with your muddler or whatever you have handy.
Roll the glass in your hand such that the mixture coats the interior of the glass. Add one large cube of ice, whiskey and stir to combine.
