A classic Old Fashioned is a cocktail made from muddling sugar and bitters until the granules of sugar dissolve and then adding a dark spirit. This could be whiskey, brandy, or even bourbon. A slice of orange and Maraschino cherry usually accompanies the drink. The Old Fashioned has been a popular cocktail since the 1880's and still is a must-have drink on any bar menu.
