Maple Syrup Old Fashioned


The Old Fashioned is probably as traditional a mixed drink you can get, dating back to the days of the prohibition it is supposedly the first drink that was referred to as a ‘cocktail’.

I have had many variants of this over the years and have made it with a variety of Whiskeys, Bourbons & Rye’s. It is a beautifully warming drink and as long as the quality of the spirit is good, it is incredibly smooth – it almost goes down too easily!

What do I need to make a good Old Fashioned?

How do I make it?

  1. Add a large measure of Whiskey to your frozen Whisky Tumbler
  2. Add 3 dashes of Aromatic Bitters
  3. Add 3 dashes of Orange Bitters
  4. Add 1 barspoon of Maple Syrup and stir
  5. Place your ice cube in the glass and stir to really cool the drink down
  6. Spritz the orange and lemon peel over the glass and place in the drink
  7. Enjoy!
