I didn't even know they did an orange one.

I used sugar syrup in mine as opposed to an actual sugar cube, worked quite well. We also have these ice cube trays that create massive cubes of ice that look cool in the glass.


Yeah, I saw that they were doing orange bitters, but will try out the standard one with an actual orange peel slice. I've read Buffalo Trace is also a good whisky to have. I need to get those larger ice cubes, that's for sure!


Make sure the white pith is removed from the orange peel. Then give it a good squeeze over the glass to get the oils out.


Thanks, bit of a pro tip there!

the problem with the syrup is you dont get a developing drink - i.e. getting sweeter as you drink it. not 'bad' - just a preference.

I love ordering an Old Fashioned at a good cocktail bar. Feel so cool.

Finished my bottle of Clynelish 14 Year Old Whisky the other day. My parents visited my brother in Scotland and were nice enough to bring me back a bottle. Very nice whisky indeed and I would happily buy another bottle, especially as the price isn't too bad.

Just finished off the last dregs of a bottle of "Karuizawa: Spirit of Asama" Japanese 2012 single malt whisky.

Absolutely gorgeous drink, and apparently quite an expensive one these days - they did a single run of it and bottles can now go for £3,000 :shock:

Necked it 8-)
