What is an “Old Fashioned?”
Technically an Old Fashioned is any variation on the blend of a spirit, namely bourbon, sugar, water and bitters and optionally garnished with orange and/or a cherry but there are as many variations out there as there are barrels in Kentucky so the recipe can vary wildly and wonderfully.
