Classic, Short & Boozy
The Old Fashioned, sturdy and sophisticated, just like the leather-bound books that sit comfortably on your shelf. Enjoy it slowly, as you would a good tale, and let the flavors unfold at their own pace. This ageless classic made with bourbon, a hint of sugar, a few dashes of bitters, and garnished with a twist of citrus zest, seems almost too simple, but therein lies its magic.
The bourbon, assertive yet mellow, plays the starring role, while the bitters bring a layer of complexity to the narrative. A touch of sugar just to sweeten the plot, and you're almost there. Yet, this Old Fashioned isn't quite like the others. No, this one calls for a single, large ice cube. An iceberg in a sea of bourbon, it cools the drink while keeping dilution to an absolute minimum.
