History - In the early 1800's, the Cocktail was a "hair of the dog" morning drink that tamed spirits with water, sugar and bitters. The late 19th Century expanded the use of the word "cocktail" to encompass just about any mixed drink. Since then, the Old Fashioned—literally, the old-fashioned way of making a cocktail—has been our contemporary expression of the original drink.

During the 20th Century, various bad ideas encrusted the Old Fashioned. Here we will strip off those barnacles to expose the amazingly simple and sublime drink beneath.

Step 1 - Take a 9oz glass

Step 2 - Add sugar

Step 3 - Add one or more dashes of aromatic bitters

Step 4 - Add 1.25 ounces of your desired bourbon

Step 5 - Splash of water

Step 6 - Add a fresh slice of orange and cherry

Step 7 - Muddle

Step 8 - Add ice
