Cook's Notes

Best old fashion is made in a 16-ounce or larger glass with ice. Add 2 to 3 fluid ounces of your choice of one of the following: brandy, whiskey, bourbon, Southern Comfort(R).

For sweet old fashion: use lemon-lime soda (such as 7-Up(R) or Sprite(R)). For sour old fashion, use tangy grapefruit soda (such as Squirt(R)) or grapefruit soda. Garnish with orange slice, maraschino cherry, pineapple, or olives, Brussels sprouts, or mushrooms.

The "old fashion" is a cocktail often ordered when waiting for one of those famous Midwest Friday Fish Frys. I have been making Old Fashion mix for years. Angostura Aromatic Bitters found in grocery or liquor stores. Read More

1. The leisure suit is an old fashion. The cocktail is called an "old fashionED." 2.) This recipe incorporates two of the essential ingredients of an old fashioned--sugar and aromatic bitters. However to build on what another reviewer said this mix is so simple it hardly seems worth the effort. Just keep a little simple syrup and bitters on hand if that's your fancy. For a variation consider a mix that adds maraschino cherry juice and a little orange juice as well. THAT particular concoction tends to pair best with a brandy old fashioned sweet or a brandy old fashioned press but can be just as tasty with the right whiskey or bourbon as well. Read More

I love Old Fashions so I thought I would give this a whirl. I think it was way too heavy on the bitters so I would suggest cutting them down to suit your taste. That being said I think making them from scratch is so easy I don't think I would make this again. Thanks for sharing! Read More
