Old Fashioned

The first record of the Old Fashioned was composed of “spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters.” Originally described as a “bittered sling”, the Old Fashioned received it’s name a generation later as people were describing the drinks of their parents. In 1881 the Pendennis Club of Louisville added muddled fruit to the traditional preparation of a bittered sling in honor of Col. James E. Pepper and marketed the beverage as the Old Fashioned.

Try a traditional old fashioned or a Pendennis Old Fashioned and decide for yourself which is better.
