The Old Fashioned is considered one of the most basic, elemental cocktails in the history of all cocktails. It’s an austere mixture of whiskey, bitters, sugar and water, so don’t settle for extremely watered-down, super-sweet, cherried-up versions. Trust us on this one—if you’re looking for the perfect gateway cocktail to other iconic, classic cocktails, try tossing back an Old Fashioned and watch yourself fall in love with this silky-smooth, must-sip drink.
