Often cited as the original "cocktail," the Old Fashioned today is one of the most-called-for "Classic" drinks. Sweet and strong, the Old Fashioned never really gets old as long as the recipe includes Maker's Mark® Bourbon.
- 1-1/2 parts Maker's Mark® Bourbon
- Splash of water
- 2 dashes Angostura® Bitters
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- Orange slice
- Maraschino cherry
Classic Old Fashioned:

Muddled Old Fashioned:
