Picture this — he watches you across the table, you casually order an Old Fashioned and savour the flavour like you have been taking tips from Don Draper himself. It doesn’t have the radioactive glow of a Screwdriver or the allure of a Chardonnay, but it will tell him you are cool, have exquisite taste and a mysterious demeanour. It is essentially the little black dress of cocktails — classic, classy and intriguing. It doesn’t need any showy sparklers, rainbow colours or tropical umbrellas. The Old Fashioned cocktail, made with top-quality whisky
or bourbon, and a hint of sugar, is very boozy and quietly confident. And, as you sip it, while making witty conversation, it will make you look quietly confident too!
