Now that Fall is upon us, its time to change over your spirits and focus on whats warm and cozy. When thinking about what to make first, what comes to mind is an Old Fashioned.
There are many variations of an Old Fashioned but in the purest form its sugar, water, Whiskey, and bitters. At Muddle & Stir we strive on providing the best products for your home bar and cocktail adventures. To help you with this process, we suggest some of the following products to help make your Old Fashioned extraordinary!
Bittermilk has gone out of its way to create pre-made cocktail mixers where all you have to do is add the spirit of your choice, garnish, and voila you have your perfect cocktail in a matter of seconds. This stuff is highly concentrated, so start with a 1:1 ratio...its easier to add more than take away!! $16.99
A perfect Old Fashioned needs a perfect glass to go with it. The Sestriere Old Fashioned glass serves that purpose. At $39.99 for a 6 pack, how can you say no!
The proper Old Fashioned recipe calls for Angostura Bitters or a combination of Aromatic and Orange Bitters. At Muddle & Stir we like to shake things up a bit and use the Miracle Mile Toasted Pecan Bitters in our Old Fashioned's. They scream Fall and bring in a wonderful Pecan taste to your Old Fashioned. $23.50
Sugar is a key component to any Old Fashioned. You can muddle it, use a simple syrup, or try Tipplemans Burnt Sugar. The benefit to Tipplemans is the carmelization notes that transform your Old Fashioned into something that you never tasted before. Don't pass up on this one. $15.25
Going back in time, there are arguments in old bar books about how you make an old fashioned. Did you make it with sugar or maple syrup? We don't think you can go wrong with either of them. So give it a whirl and try your next Old Fashioned with Noble Handcrafted Tahitian Vanilla & Egyptian Chamomile Infused Maple Syrup. $27.50
