How the Irish Make an Old Fashioned

2 Likes Comment

We paid Teeling Distillery a visit in Dublin, Ireland, to get the low down on mastering a classic cocktail—the old fashioned.

“There are a lot of different ways you can do an Old Fashioned, but we’re keeping it very simple,” says Chris Hayes, Teeling Distillery Brand Ambassador. “We want the whiskey to come out.”

Here’s how to make it at home.


  • 10-20mL simple syrup
  • 50mL whiskey
  • 3 dashes angostura bitters


  1. Add the simple syrup, whiskey, and bitters. Add plenty of ice. Stir for 20 sec, then pour over a glass with fresh ice. Garnish with orange peel.
