The Old-Fashioned is the best kind of cocktail, which is to say, it's a classic crowd-pleaser that's perfectly balanced and seriously boozy. Making an Old-Fashioned cocktail at home is easy. Here, you'll muddle a slice of clementine with ginger, a maraschino cherry, sugar, and bitters together in a glass, then add bourbon and ice. That's what makes this the best Old-Fashioned recipe: it's simple, just like the drink itself.
