Old Fashioned Envy

(Old Fashioned)

 

What’s it all about?

 

The Old Fashioned, dating back to the 1880s is one of the six basic drinks listed in David A. Embury’s The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. The cocktail of choice of Don Draper of Mad Men fame, and Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling) in Crazy, Stupid, Love – this cocktail is back in vogue and a super fine and elegantly simple way to knock back whisky.

 

What’s in it?

 

35ml ENVY Whisky

2 dashes Angostura bitters

1 Sugar cube

Few dashes plain water

 

How to make it:

 

Place a sugar cube in an old fashioned glass and soak with the bitters, add a splash of plain water, and mix (muddle) until the sugar is dissolved. Add plenty of ice cubes and ENVY Whisky, and thinly sliced orange to garnish.
