The old-fashioned is one of the oldest mixed drinks in the cocktail canon.
A fruited version of the drink came into play after Prohibition and involves the muddling of a cherry and orange slice along with the sugar.
Most have tried this classic, regular, smoked, or adding in additional twists and flavors.
Now, Enjoy an Old Fashioned, the Rivente Cognac way.
Muddle the brown sugar and bitters with one bar spoon of water at the bottom of a chilled rocks glass.
Add the cognac and stir briefly to combine.
Add one large ice cube, or three or four smaller cubes. Stir until chilled and properly diluted, about 30 seconds
Slip orange twist on the side of the cube for garnish
