Whiskey Old Fashioned


  • A shaker or stirring glass
  • A bar spoon (or teaspoon)
  • Rocks glass


  • 2 parts rye whiskey
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 1/3 part sugar
  • 1/3 part soda water
  • Cubed ice
  • A sugar cube (or granulated sugar)
  • To garnish: Lemon slice & cherry

How to mix

  1. Add your sugar cube or sugar to a rocks glass
  2. Add 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters and a splash of hot water
  3. If you used a sugar cube, crush it up with your muddler or spoon
  4. Stir the mix until you have dissolved all of the sugar
  5. Add 3 or 4 ice cubes and half of the rye whiskey and stir for around 60 seconds
  6. Top up the glass with ice and add the rest of the rye whiskey, then stir for another 60 seconds
  7. Cut a piece of orange peel about the size of your thumb (be careful not to bend it). Hold the piece of orange peel between finger and thumb over the glass. Quickly bend the orange peel so the oil from the skin settles on the surface of the drink
  8. Add the orange peel to the drink, stir a couple more times and serve
