In Episode 7, we drank one fancy drink, Old Fashioneds.
Old Fashioneds have a very cool history, Hoover breaks down a really interesting story on how it got named in Episode 7 of the And a Beard We Go Podcast.
They’re a fairly easy cocktail to make, there’s a couple ingredients, but no mixers, so pretty simple. So simple, even the great Don Draper drinks it when he’s out on the town. And by out on the town, he’s literally ON the town, and by town I mean neglected housewives & confused 60′s trollops.
Here’s how to make an Old Fashioned Cocktail…
What you need:
Rye Whiskey OR Bourbon (NOT Irish Whiskey)
Slice a bit of orange rind and muddle in the glass.
Squirt 3 squirts of simple syrup.
Dash 2-3 dashes of Bitters.
Pour 4 count of Whiskey.
Drop in cherry.
