The old fashioned whisky cocktail was made popular again by TV shows like Mad Men. This bitter cherry old fashioned is a twist on the classic recipe, but just as delicious. It couldn't be easier to make a couple in just 5 minutes and served in a heavy tumbler glass, it makes for the perfect grown-up cocktail. Just like the classic old fashioned, you only need a handful of ingredients to make this cocktail, which adds a couple of sour cherries into the mix.


  • 100ml whisky
  • Angostura bitters
  • a pinch of caster sugar
  • 2 sour cherries
  • a slice of orange, to serve

  1. Fill 2 tumblers with ice cubes and stir, to cool the glass. Pour 50ml whisky over each with a dash of Angostura bitters, a pinch of caster sugar, and 2 sour cherries.

  2. Stir well to dissolve the sugar and serve with a slice of orange.
