There was a time when people would call for a cocktail and automatically received an Old Fashioned. It's simply spirit, sugar, water and bitters. We see so many complicated drinks. Some of the best cocktails are still three to four ingredients. Keep it simple and balanced; it never goes out of style.” Evan Hosaka Lead Bartender, Venetian Cocktail Collective The Tattle Tale “The Tattle Tale is a riff on The Penicillin, leaving out citrus and ginger. The Old Fashioned was one of the original cocktails of the early 1800s. It's timeless because it uses simple ingredients, yet offers rich, complex flavor. Each ingredient can be so diverse, from the type of bitters, the sugar source and an interchangeable base spirit.” Clint Thoman Food and Beverage Director, The Mob Museum The Underground Old Fashioned “Our preparation is based on classic recipes: 2 ounces of Jim Beam Black Extra Aged Bourbon, 0.25 ounces brown sugar simple syrup and two dashes of sassafras bitters. Everything is poured into a small flask [and] hidden inside a hollowedout book, alongside a glass with ice and a housemade brandied cherry.” Jean Tomaro Executive Beverage Director, Hogsalt Hospitality, Bavette's Tokyo Old Fashioned “An Old Fashioned is a historic drink and enjoyed by guests so much that we provide a few different offerings. My personal favorite is the Tokyo Old Fashioned. Crafted with Japanese whisky, a special black sugar from Okinawa and beautiful block ice, [it] is a nod to the classics and an ode to Japanese culture.” Andrew Pollard Wynn Las Vegas Resident Mixologist Aloha Old Fashioned “The Aloha Old Fashioned at Wynn's Tower Suite Bar is designed for those with an open mind. This Old Fashioned transports your palate through the flavors of rich molasses, juicy fresh pineapple and rum raisin from East India sherry, contrasted with the complexity of funky Jamaican rum, bittersweet FernetBranca and baking spices from angostura bitters.”
