Tradies Cocktail Corner - Old Fashioned

Old Fashioned – sounds fancy but make one once and you won’t look back. A new (but old) way for a premium bourbon as smooth as the hills like Maker’s Mark. The TCC – simplifying cocktails since 2017. 

You will need:

  • Sugar cube
  • Angostura bitters
  • Maker’s Mark Bourbon 
  • Orange peel 
  • Ice 
  • An Old Fashioned glass + a vessel to make it in 
  • A muddling tool and a stirring tool   

Method: 

Add a sugar cube to your vessel and soak with a few dashes of Angostura Bitters. Muddle until sugar cube is broken down. Add 60ml of Maker’s Mark Bourbon and stir until sugar has dissolved. Pour over ice in an old fashioned glass. Zest an orange peel above the glass, then rub around the rim, before adding it to the glass. 

Nice!
