Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned is a classic American drink that has its roots in a number of sweet whisky cocktails from the 1800s. The term cocktail used to mean a morning hangover drink where the spirits were tempered with sweeter ingredients, rather than the current meaning of generic mixed drink. "Old Fashioned" literally means the old fashioned way of making a cocktail in the original sense.
