⏰ 3-4 minutes 🍸 Upmarket 💰 Expensive 🏃‍♀️ Slow Drink

The Old Fashioned Cocktail is a slow, but rewarding drink. It is a drink to be enjoyed in the evening after a stressful day at work. It featured heavily in the US TV Series Mad Men and was a drink enjoyed by one of the lead characters ‘Don Draper’.


  • 2-3 shots of Whisky
  • Few drops of Angostura bitters
  • Water/ Ice
  • Sugar

Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe

  1. Line the bottom of your glass with sugar (1 tsp granulated sugar), before adding a few drops of Angostura bitters.
  2. Mix this with a few drops of water and ice.
  3. At this point you have the option to add orange peel, I think this adds a nice touch to the drink, but it tastes perfectly fine without.
  4. Add the Whisky, mix and enjoy.
