Old Fashioned

Originating in the early 1800’s the Old Fashioned may be the first drink to be called a cocktail. It is traditionally served in a short glass now called an Old Fashioned glass.

Cocktail Ingredients:
2 ounces rye whiskey
1 sugar cube
3 dashes Angostura bitters
club soda

Place the sugar cube in an Old-Fashioned glass. ADD 2 or 3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a splash of water or club soda. Crush the sugar with a wooden muddler OR strong spoon. Rotate the glass so that the sugar grains and bitters give it a lining. Add a large ice cube. Pour in the rye (or bourbon). Serve with a stirring rod. Garnish with an orange slice or cherries.


Cocktail Ingredients:
1 1/2 oz. Rye Whiskey
2 drops Angostura Bitters

Mix and drink.


Great for summer and winter. One of the oldest cocktails, this one is always best served chilled chilled glass, not on the rocks.

Cocktail Ingredients:
2oz Rye, do not use bourbon
1/4 oz simple syrup
4 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
Splash of water

Fill mixing glass with ice and stir contents until chilled. Do NOT shake. Strain into an old-fashioned glass. Twist lemon peel for oils and discard. Serve and enjoy!
