Old Fashioned

Aug 16, 2023Justin Giroux

The Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail that was invented in Louisville, KY. You can make it with bourbon, rye, or a blended whiskey. You can also substitute one sugar cube for the simple syrup, but we prefer the simple syrup as it provides a smoother finish.



  • 2 teaspoons simple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 dashes bitters (we love the Almond Bitters with this recipe!)
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger bourbon whiskey
  • 1 orange slice
  • 1 maraschino cherry


Pour simple syrup, water, and bitters into a whiskey glass; stir to combine. Add ice cubes and pour in bourbon. Garnish with orange slice and maraschino cherry.
