Old Fashioned

Old Fashioned presented by Cocktail Detour


We’ve posted a few variations throughout the years, but believe it or not this is our first post of the classic Old Fashioned recipe.

A cocktail cannot get more iconic can it? Watching old movies or TV-series where cocktails are featured, it’s almost always an Old Fashioned (or well, possibly a Dry Martini).

What we especially appreciate about an Old Fashioned is its many layers, despite its relatively simple and straightforward recipe. That whisky combined with just sugar and two bitters turns into a complex, interesting and much delightful drink!

Old Fashioned



2 oz rye or bourbon (we prefer rye)
0,5 oz simple syrup
3 dashes Angostura bitters
2 dashes orange bitters


Stir all ingredients with fresh ice and strain into a heavy rocks glass over ice cubes. Garnish with an orange peel.
