The old fashioned will always be the first on the list of whisky drinks for being a classic whisky cocktail. Originated sometime in the 1800s, it’s a solid example of a true cocktail and a drink you should know both how to make and order.
Chill a cocktail glass. Fill a mixing glass to the top with ice. Measure out the alcohol and sugar, and dash in the bitters. Stir. If a drink is all alcohol and no juice, it’s stirred and not shaken.
