Scotch Old Fashioned

Scotch Old Fashioned

Arguably the world's oldest cocktail, the Old-Fashioned is a deceptively simple blend of whiskey, sugar and bitters, and a must for any lover of dark spirits seeking perfection in a glass.

Ingredients

Serves:

1

2 units of alcohol per serve

Equipment

  • 1 x Short glass

  • 1 x Chopping board

  • 1 x Jigger

  • 1 x Ice

  • 1 x Stirrer

  • 1 x Knife

Method

  • Muddle

    Place a sugar cube in a short glass and add a few dashes of angostura bitters to soak.

    Use a muddler to press down on the sugar cube and dissolve it in the angostura bitters.

     

  • Ice

    Fill the glass with ice cubes.

  • Pour

    Using a jigger, measure 50ml of Blended Scotch Whisky into the glass.

  • Garnish

    With a chopping board and a sharp knife cut a slice of orange; place on top of the drink, along with a cherry, to garnish.

  • Grab a bite

    Get some grub in before or while you’re drinking – it slows alcohol absorption.
