Back to Classics with Old Fashioned Drinks

oldfashioned.jpgWe've said before we think the Old Fashioned is our barometer drink to help us decide if we like a bar or its bartenders. If they can mix a good one, we'll take off our hat. If they look at is blankly, we find somewhere else to go. It's a classic. Maybe THE classic. It's even got a damned type of glass named after it.

The folks at AskMen have put together profiles and recipes for the Old Fashioned and other classic cocktails if you want to spend some time getting back to your roots. They've got Harvey Wallbangers (in the running for best cocktail name ever), Gin Marinis (no flirtinis here), and all sorts of great stuff. Plus, we're interested in their take on our Old Fashioned, because their recipe calls for brandy instead of the rye or bourbon we've always used. Color us intrigued.

PS - We found a recipe closer to our Old Fashioned here if you're interested. And who wouldn't be?

PPS - Here's where we found a great article on the old fashioned, past and present (and the image for this story).
