Richly flavoured, almost like molasses.
This twist on the Old-Fashioned was created by Dick Bradsell in the 1990s' London. Like the original, it takes a few minutes to make and there are no shortcuts. The apple juice Dick originally used is the cheap clear stuff rather than the posh pressed cloudy apple juice. In this drink, cheap is best.
