What are you muddling? The simple syrup, the bitters, or the bourbon? Because that's all that is in it. Also, what bar that isn't a college shithole doesn't have a muddler?

The orange and cherry - if you even expect to get them - should be the garnish. It's called a flag.

I don't use simple for my old fashioned, muddle the orange with a raw sugar cube and garnish with a cherry. It's less of an old fashioned proper, but it's a ~100 year tradition at my club that everyone expects. Shrug.

1) Eat half a creme brulee

2) Fill the void with bourbon

3) Drink the bourbon

4) Fill the void with bourbon

5) The void will never be filled. Repeat until dead.

$#$%^&@@*!!!


Old Fashioned creme brulee sounds fantastic. My girlfriend and I made Old Fashioned jello shots for my family last year: orange jello with bourbon, and a dash of bitters and a Luxardo cherry in each one. They were delicious.

The Old Fashioned is a cocktail that people often disagree on, but the most agreeable recipe I've found is as follows:

1 sugar cube or 1/4oz demerara simple syrup
2oz bourbon or rye
2 dashes Angostura bitters

Muddle the sugar cube, if using, in a double rocks glass with a splash of still water. Add other ingredients along with a strip of orange peel and a large ice cube. Stir until cold. Garnish with a maraschino cherry if desired.

Muddling the orange and cherry became popular in the 80s and 90s when the trend in cocktails was for everything to be sweet and fruity. Making the cocktail in the method I've laid out allows the base spirit to speak for itself, which I believe is the original intent of the drink.

Do a pork belly old fashioned instead.

Base of bourbon and orange juice reduction
Cube of braised pork belly topped with crisped skin and caramelized sugar
Dash of bitters on the skin.
Garnish with dried orange, comb honey (with comb) and a loving flower of something pretty.

Serve with many old fashions that don't have any loving muddled orange and cherries (they can have some orange peel though, that's fine).

if you were using a sugar cube/bitters rather than simple (which I've never used I prefer demerara) then you at least need to be stirring. Muddling is maybe a bit over-kill. Also cherries suck in them, orange twists are the light - but do not need to be muddled imo.

no bar I ever worked in lacked a muddler - and I definitely worked in a few poo poo holes.
