Rye Malt Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned is a drink bestowed upon the world by the Americans. Like so much of the great cocktails of history; its roots are humble. Faced with a world of new “fancy drinks” some curmudgeonly drinkers railed against the modern drinking crazes, insisting they wanted an Old Fashioned drink - just hooch, bitters, water and sugar. And 150 years later not much has changed. There was a small hiccup in its history in the second half of the last century when bartenders went rogue and started adding muddled fruit and other monstrosities. Lucky their collective heads were smacked together and they came to their senses. Thank goodness.

Ingredients:

  • 5ml sugar syrup
  • 2-3 dashes of Angostura bitters (and we’re talking proper dashes here, not drops)

Method:

Stir all the ingredients over ice, tasting as you go. Rye Malt sits at 46% ABV - which is hotter than your average bear. If you find this a little assertive for your palate give it a touch longer in the mixing glass to provide some additional dilution.

Garnish with an orange twist.

This is the starting ratio for all Old Fashioneds, try experimenting - get into some niche bitters and see what happens. Switch up the citrus. Have a play.
