Sugar-free sweetener
3 dash Angostura Aromatic Bitters (optional)

Comment:

Despite being made with a dash of sweetener rather than sugar, or even Demerara sugar, this is a very palatable Old Fashioned and many will not be able to differentiate between the classic sugar-loaded version.

Adding aromatic bitters will help the cocktail’s flavour but add trace amounts of sugar.

Adapted from the classic serve by yours truly (Simon Difford) in January 2019.
