Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned cocktail is made by mashing equal parts sugar, water, and bitters in a mixing glass. After that, whisky is added, and the drink is finished off with an orange twist and a cherry. It is customarily presented with ice in an old-fashioned glass, which predates the concept of the cocktail and is also known as a rocks glass. Give it a shot, and then report back to us with your thoughts.
