Did you ever watch the TV show, Mad Men? We’re not here to do a recap of Don Draper’s quotes (but he did teach us that success is all about standing out, not fitting in). We’re here for the drinks. It’s never too early to down a good cocktail. It has to be after work in case you miss the memo. The one drink that stood out in the TV show is the Old Fashioned cocktail.
This Old Fashioned cocktail recipe is from AMC, the TV network that ran the TV show from 2007-2015. The ingredients can be doubled up depending on the number of people partaking. You can also switch up the ingredients for a little more sophistication like having extra cherry for garnishing.
3 dashes of bitters
½ tsp sugar dissolved with water and bitters
1½ oz of bourbon
1 orange slice
1 lemon wedge
- Fill a glass with ice.
- Add the cherry, orange slice and lemon wedge.
- Pour in the bourbon and serve.
