If you have ever had a great, warm cocktail and then went and told your guests that it was an old fashioned without the bitters, they probably would not be willing to try it. It's just not very inviting. But you don't have to put in that extra effort. Simply use the basic ingredients found at the grocery store and you will have a great drink on a rainy afternoon.
What's so great about an old-fashioned cocktail? Well for starters, it's the perfect way to warm up and enjoy the weather with friends. Everyone likes to have that great drink after a long day. Well, what if we replaced the usual gin with lemon or lime?
To make an old fashioned, all you need is squirt the hell out of the fruit until you have as much fruit juice as you can. Then add a little bit of lime juice, and if you want something a little more tart, use a little bit of orange. Have a good love/hate relationship with this classic cocktail. On the one hand, dilution is a crucial part of its recipe. You know that there are gin, sugar, bitter, and bitters…is it really a cherry, an orange, or a grapefruit? The best way to get around this is to get the ingredients together as a solid mixture, shake them together and then strain into an old fashioned glass.
Then just enjoy the drink. If you're using orange juice, you can put a little lime in with the drink, but be careful. If you add too much, it could give you the orange taste. But if you're using lime, you can add the bitter in with the orange. Just remember, not too much!
This drink can be made in many ways with simple ingredients. Most recipes will tell you how to mix these ingredients together. One good way to mix things is to use a standard double-shot glass to pour all the ingredients into the glass and shake it up until smooth. Then you just pour it into your favorite cocktail glass.
Then sit back and enjoy! I promise, you won't be sorry! !
If you're looking to jazz up an old fashioned, try using some fruits. You can add berries, grapes, peaches, nectarines, or any type of fruit you can think of!
Of course, not everyone likes their drinks on the sweeter side. For them, there are a couple of other options as well. There is an old fashioned called the Old Fashioned that's slightly sweet and a little sour, while a gin and tonic are almost bitter, but not nearly as bitter.
The problem you are facing is not to bring you down, but so you can think more mature than today, yesterday and before. It's not patience if you still have limits and it's not sincerity if you still feel pain. Leave thoughts that make you weak, and hold thoughts that give you strength.
