Few cocktails inspire the same love as the Old Fashioned. Isn’t that worth celebrating?
The oldest written recipe for the Old Fashioned supposedly dates back to 1802, but it’s safe to say that probably wasn’t the first time an enterprising bartender thought to combine a spirit, sugar and bitters.
That raises an important question: Why did it take until 2015 for anyone to think to spend a week celebrating the grandfather of all cocktails?
