Old Fashioned step by step

Old Fashioned presentation

An Old Fashioned is traditionally served in a lowball glass, which is a short and wide type of glass with a thick bottom. The garnish on a drink typically consists of an orange peel and an amarena cherry, but some prefer to add a slice of orange or a sprig of rosemary for extra flavor and flair.

Remember to cut the orange peel into a thin strip and bend it slightly over the glass before placing it in the glass. This will release the essential oils from the shell and give the cocktail a lovely fragrance.
