The Perfect Serve Cocktail: Old Fashioned

Sweet, bitter, and just a little bit sexy

Sweet, bitter, and just a little bit sexy - The Old Fashioned should be served on ice with a curl of orange zest, in our Perfect Serve Single Old Fashioned tumbler.


In the 19th century, the term “cocktail” referred to a specific type of drink, rather than an entire category of drinks as it does today. It was clearly defined as containing spirits, sugar, bitters, and water or ice, and was later termed “Old Fashioned”.
