Lockdown Cocktail: The Old Fashioned

Lockdown Old Fashioned

This week’s Lockdown Cocktail is extra special as it’s a Bank Holiday weekend Friday-Monday mash-up. So we’ll be celebrating yet another night in with an easy peasy Old Fashioned. 

If you’ve not made one yourself before it really is a doddle.


Lockdown Cocktail: The Old Fashioned

This makes one cocktail, simply scale up to make more.


50ml bourbon whisky (we like Woodford Reserve)

15ml sugar syrup (you can always use regular sugar or a little honey or maple syrup instead)

3 dashes of Angostura bitters

Garnish: Orange Twist

Ice: Cubed



Add the sugar syrup to the glass with the bitters. Add roughly 1/3 of the Woodford Reserve with 3 ice cubes and stir. Keep repeating until the Woodford Reserve is finished.

Seriously, keep stirring.

Garnish and serve.
