Review:

This drink is often mixed in the glass in which it is to be served. Shaking better incorporates the flavours produced by muddling and fine straining removes the orange peel and cherry skin.

History:

Orange and lemon segments, and sometimes even a maraschino cherry, are sometimes muddled when making an Old Fashioned. The practice probably originated during Prohibition as a means of disguising rough spirits. This practice is almost unknown outside north America and as Crosby Gaige wrote in 1944, "Serious-minded persons omit fruit salad from Old Fashioneds."
