Old Fashioned Cocktails is nne of my favourite cocktails. I've been enjoying for years is the iconic classic Old Fashioned. It is one of those cocktails that never get old and as much sounds so simple it offers so many options for riffs or variation of making it.
I want to share with you the way I like to make it. It is my way and how I like it. Every bartender has their way of serving the Old Fashioned, and as far they stay close to the basic you'll be served a wonderful tipple.
