Peach White Balsamic Old Fashioned
The first “Old Fashioned” cocktail was first mentioned by Jerry Thomas in his 1862 book Bartenders Guide: How To Mix Drinks. The big difference was that instead of whiskey or bourbon, It was Old Holland Gin as the main ingredient.In 1895 Modern American Drinks, written by George Kappeler, was published with a Whiskey Old Fashioned. It read, “Dissolve a small lump of sugar with a little water in a whiskey-glass; add two dashes Angostura bitters, a small piece of ice, a piece of lemon-peel, one jigger whiskey. Mix with small bar-spoon and serve, leaving spoon in glass.”The cocktail has been a classic cocktail since that book was published. This modern twist on an oldie will become your new favorite drink.
