Old Fashioned History
The origins of this cocktail go so far back that it's tough to trust anyone who says they created it. The original drink was named the 'Whiskey Cocktail', as it reflected the characteristics of the classic cocktail formula laid down in 1806; spirit, sugar, water and bitters. The proliferation of new liqueurs available to bartenders from the 1870s resulted in a treadmill of new 'improved' Whiskey Cocktails... but which also led to a revolt amongst those who yearned for the original drink. Hence the Old Fashioned Whiskey Cocktail.
