Old Fashioned

Virgin Oak Whisky, Cherrywood Bitters, Gum Sugar

The Old Fashioned is the original cocktail, we don’t mean that it was the first mixed drink. In the modern era we use the word “cocktail” to encompass any kind of mixed drink with spirits, but in the 19th century the “cock-tail” was just one more category of mixed drinks among many, on equal footing with the julep, toddy, punch, sling, cobbler, flip, sour, fizz, and more. At least as far back as the 1800s, people were using the word cocktail (or “cock-tail”) to specifically describe:

“…a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters—it is vulgarly called bittered sling.”
