A lot of cocktails are served (and prepared) with ice, but did you ever wonder why?
Dallas bartender Ivan Rimach can tell you while he makes a classic old fashioned with Old Forester 1897 bourbon whisky.
Watch the video and then stir up a glass of your own with the recipe below.
1897 Old Fashioned
Yields 1 drink
2 ounces Old Forester 1897 Bourbon Whisky
0.25 ounces brown sugar simple syrup
4 dashes angostura bitters
1 fresh orange peel for garnish
Combine the syrup, whisky, and bitters in a mixing glass, then add ice and stir for 30 seconds.
Place a large-format ice cube in the old fashioned glass, then pour the mixture on top.
Twist the orange peel to express the oils, then add it to the glass.
