Our Comment:

Rich (medium-dry and spirituous this old-fashioned is all too easy to drink and fortunately, easy to make.

About:

As with the Martini, the glass this cocktail is served in has taken the name of the drink. Its origin stems from the adaptation and renaming of a similar drink known as the Whisky Cocktail which was shaken and served up. Who did the adapting and renaming is unknown.

For the full story behind the origins of the Old-Fashioned see our Old-Fashioned page.
