Old Fashioned (IBA) Description
As with the Martini, the glass this cocktail is served in has taken the name of the drink. Its origin stems from the adaptation and renaming of a similar drink known as the Whisky Cocktail which was shaken and served up. Who did the adapting and renaming is unknown.
Place sugar cube in old-fashioned glass and saturate with bitters, add a dash of plain water. Muddle until dissolve. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add whiskey.
