Twitter Reacts To A Questionable Old Fashioned Recipe

The Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail that’s been re-invented in various ways. Maybe you’ll favor bourbon over whiskey. Maybe you prefer brown sugar to simple syrup or Orange Bitters to Angostura Bitters. Perhaps—like one exciting bartender I witnessed recently—you not only lace the drink with a squeeze of orange rind oil, you also ignite that oil for a bit of rim-rubbing panache! Or perhaps you do whatever is happening here.

In this rediscovered bit of internet mayhem,’s Ja Nee Nisonger has a recipe all her own. She suggests using sugar cubes instead of simple syrup if you don’t want your cocktail too “liquidy.” She employs a big, honking ready-for-soccer-game break time orange slice instead of a thin slice or the shaved peel. Then she muddles the orange, the sugar cube, and two maraschino cherries—not with a muddler, mind you—but with the back of a dingy, wooden spoon. I mean, we haven’t even gotten to how she chooses to blend her ingredients or her questionable eyeballing of 3 ounces of bourbon and already there are some CHOICES being made here.

Naturally, Twitter had thoughts. Here are the highlights from the replies to the tweet above.

And that’s not all!
