Beginning mid-2011 and ending mid-2012 we took a pretty extensive road trip to find the oldest bars in the nation. During our journey we had a number of libations that stuck with us, that were noteworthy and worth recording, and that made us want to stumble back to the bar again and again.
But we also had a lot of pretty lousy drinks. It’s easy, we found, to screw up what would otherwise be a uncomplicated cocktail.
One in particular was the Old Fashioned. This otherwise unassuming and humble drink seems like it should be simple to whip up, but alas we found ourselves facing many a bartender that didn’t know how to mix three ingredients into one of America’s most distinguished drinks.Add a comment
