Your choice of cocktail can reveal a lot about your style and personality, and the Old Fashioned, in particular, has been around for over 100 years. Its simplicity, elegance, and bold flavors make it an iconic drink. Just like the cocktail itself, ordering an Old Fashioned suggests that you have a classic and timeless fashion sense. You might appreciate vintage-inspired pieces, traditional tailoring, and classic silhouettes that never go out of style.
The Old Fashioned cocktail is simple, made with just a few ingredients.
1 teaspoon sugar or 2 teaspoons of simple syrup
2-3 dashes of bitters
- 1 teaspoon water
2.5 ounces of Bourbon
Orange twist (garnish)
Add the sugar or simple syrup and bitters to a rocks glass, then add the water, and stir until the sugar is nearly dissolved or simple syrup is blended.
Fill the glass with large ice cubes, add premium bourbon, and gently stir to combine.
Express the oil of an orange twist while holding it over the glass, then drop it into the glass as a traditional garnish.

Ordering a lavender mocktail can say a few things about your fashion sense and personal style:
Choosing a lavender mocktail indicates that you might be aware of current trends in both food and fashion. Lavender-infused drinks have gained popularity in recent years, and enjoying one suggests that you appreciate staying up-to-date with what's in vogue.
