Old fashioned cocktail – 5 versions you have to try

Old fashioned cocktail

Old fashioned cocktail – on the IBA official cocktails list, under the category “The unforgettables”. It’s a template I enjoy expirimenting with, and is orignally made with whiskey or bourbon. You can use any type of base spirit of choice and sweetener or modifyer, which will give you endless choice, so you get the flavour profile you like and prefer.

For my Old fashioned recipes I prefer to use 60 ml / 6 cl of spirit to 10 – 15 ml / 1 – 1,5 cl of modifyer / sweetener and a few drops of bitters, stirred over ice to perfectly diluted.

In this post I have displayed five different Old fashioned styled serves, to show that there are many ways to make an Old fashioned.

Do you have a favorite Old fashioned recipe I should try ? Tell me in the comments below.
