  • Re: San Diego Old Fashioned

    I would have thought the idea of replacing bitters with fruit was a dreadful one, however I've had an Old Fashioned made for me with a rich simple syrup of brown sugar and a massive amount of infused orange peel and somehow it was spicy and fragranced enough to warrant the omission. I ask the bartender...

  • Re: San Diego Old Fashioned

    Thanks for the reply. It seemed odd to me as well, but I've seen and tasted a lot of odd "versions" of cocktails. I thought maybe if you smashed the pith of the orange peel enough you'd get a bitterness mixed with the juice of the fruit and oil of the peel. Maybe on a slow day I'll...

  • San Diego Old Fashioned

    I came across this paragraph today in the Old Fashioned article on Wikipedia: "Many bartenders add fruit, typically an orange slice, and muddle it with the sugar before adding the whiskey. This practice likely began during the Prohibition era in the United States as a means of covering the bitter...

  • The Old-fashioned: An Atlantic Divide

    Hello everyone I just wanted to spark a little debate on that most perennial of topics: the old fashioned (sorry). Now, obviously, the old fruit mush vs delicious bittered sling dialogue has been dead in the water ever since people started mixing decent drinks again and the fruit muddlers went away to...

  • Re: The Old Fashioned

    Hmmm... I haven't seen this specific story before, and while interesting, it sounds a bit like revisionist history, especially with referencing Martin Cuneo as the originator of the Old Fashioned. I found a reference to him working at the Pendennis Club in 1930. The oldest reference I have to a recipe...

  • Re: The Old Fashioned, Wrongly

    Yes, Mr. Hess' Old Fashioned is basically what my understanding of the original Old Fashioned Whiskey Cocktail was. Rye or Bourbon Loaf sugar (or simple syrup) Water (provided by the ice) Bitters (Boker's was likely the bitters of choice - why don't we bring back Boker's, Mr. Hess? Let's...

  • The Old Fashioned, Wrongly

    As most of you probably know far too well, the plight of the Old Fashioned is one of my pet peeves. With the vast majority of bartenders around the world making such a disaster in a glass that it is almost beyond my comprehension. Periodically, I encounter bartenders who will add a "splash"...
