First It Giveth Gin Old Fashioned Recipe

gin old fashioned

Inspired by a recipe discovered in Jerry Thomas’ Bar-Tenders Guide, this modern take on the Gin Old Fashioned is bar manager Jason King’s way of offering guests “a ‘nip of gin’ in the ‘old fashioned way’,” he says. “The drink is light, refreshing and its zesty acidity is perfect for a warm day on the patio while enjoying your favorite dish.”

2 oz. gin (London Dry)
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: double rocks
Garnish: orange peel

Add all ingredients to mixing glass with ice. Stir to chill and strain into a glass over large ice cube. Garnish.
