Old Fashioned

The secret to this cocktail is to take your time. Chill the glass to begin with large ice cubes and enjoy making it, then you’ll enjoy drinking it even more. Use the back of a spoon to muddle the sugar lump and bitters in an Old Fashioned glass. Add a cube of ice and 15ml Chivas and stir into sugar crystals until the ice cube has half melted. Repeat 3 more times. Rub orange rind around the rim of the glass, add cherry and stir.

Old Fashioned

  • 50ml Chivas 18 year old
  • Dash of Angostura bitters
  • 1x Brown sugar lump
  • 1x Orange slice
