Mister Bitters – The Whisky Cocktail – stirring
The Whisky Cocktail
What we know today as The Old Fashioned was actually called The Whisky Cocktail, pre-prohibition. This classic cocktail is the best showcase of bitters. Without the bitters, the cocktail simply does not work. Traditionally made by soaking a sugar cube in Angostura bitters, then stirred down with 60ml of Rye Whiskey over ice and garnished with an orange twist.
