I’d forgotten about ye Old Fashioned until Dad Down Under popped it back into my head. I’m a BIG fan of Whiskey. Big. Huge. So is Inky apparently. I asked Melbourne Dad the other day if he wanted a Wild Turkey and little Inky popped her head into the conversation and asked, “Wild Turkey please, Mummy”. Little Mimic. Cough.
Here is one of the finest of the Whiskey classics and it’s so simple it will make you cry.
40 ml Scotch or Whiskey
1 sugar cube
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Put sugar cube in a glass and drench it with the bitters. Muddle until dissolved. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add whiskey/scotch. Garnish with orange slice or a maraschino cherry if you’re super-dooper fancy.
