I’m just an old fashioned girl

As usual, I looked through my cocktail books comparing
various recipes for an Old Fashioned cocktail before making
this week’s cocktail. Sugar cubes or syrup, orange bitters
or angostura, optional splash of soda etc, so I settled on
this one.
The ingredients in this 19th century drink, which I found
a tad strong to be honest, are muddled together.
My husband, however had no complaints!

‘Booze’ and my lovely new cocktail book ‘Cocktails The Present
from the Past’.

Proceed with caution, may cause wobbly legs. Drink aware etc.
