Old Fashioned

Yield: 1 cocktail Total time: 10 minutes July 29, 2016

A sugar cube, muddled with bitters and water and topped with rye whiskey makes for an elegant (and very strong!) cocktail.

Recipe from Esquire.


  • 1 sugar cube (or 1/2 tsp. loose sugar)
  • Angostura bitters
  • Club soda
  • 2 oz. rye whiskey (or bourbon)


Place the sugar in an old-fashioned glass. Wet it down with 2 or 3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a short splash of water or club soda. Crush the sugar with a wooden muddler, chopstick, or spoon.

Rotate the glass so that the sugar grains and bitters line the glass

Add a large ice cube. Pour in the rye, and serve with a stirring rod.
