The Old Fashioned is regarded as a gentleman’s drink. And while it’s been a standby cocktail for what seems to be centuries, there’s nothing old fashioned about it.
We paid Teeling Distillery a visit in Dublin, Ireland, to get the lowdown on this classic cocktail.
“It’s a very personal cocktail,” says Chris Hayes, Teeling Distillery brand ambassador. “Some people like them a little bit more sharp or on the sweet side. There’s no right or wrong answer to how you should be drinking or making it.”
The base, for the most part, is straightforward:
- 10-20mL simple syrup
- 50mL whiskey
- 3 dashes angostura bitters
See how you can put your own spin on the classic whiskey cocktail.
