Smoked Old Fashioned
“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” – Mark Twain
The Old Fashioned comes by its name honestly. It’s old. Though its origins are contested, in general it is believed to have not emerged as one specific cocktail, but rather a popular style of drink around the 1860’s. Bartenders, cocktail enthusiasts and starch traditionalists have for generations, debated the proper components, garnishes, recipes & presentation of what is essentially a three ingredients cocktail.
Our particular combination creates a very well-balanced Old Fashioned. Not too sweet, not too spicy and very smooth, the perfect cocktail for anybody’s palate.
How to Make
First, smoke your glass on Oak.
In a Mixing Beaker, combine the raw sugar cube, bitters, & water. Muddle the ingredients to a paste. Next, add the bourbon and ice. Stir for 15-20 rotations or until the ingredients have combined and chilled.
Strain into a rocks glass, add fresh ice. Finally, garnish with an orange twist.
