new fashioned cocktail is exactly what you need
What is an Old Fashioned Cocktail?
An old fashioned is typically made with bourbon, orange peel, bitters and a cherry. Orange peel is muddled with the bitters and sugar in an old fashioned glass. Ice and bourbon are added to the glass and stirred once or twice.
A maraschino cherry is the classic garnish for an old fashioned. These simple ingredients blend together to make a very iconic drink.
Non Alcoholic New Fashioned Drink
While many people may love this classic cocktail, we aren’t super excited about how much alcohol is in an old fashioned drink. We want something with no alcohol! But still a drink that is delicious and has that classic appeal. Time to make a new fashioned and ditch the old fashioned for good!
However, we wanted to capture this classic drink is way that is more friendly to those of us who do not want alcohol. After a few trials and errors, we think we got it! Our New Fashioned is now ready to try.
Making a great old fashioned can be considered an art. Making a perfect New Fashioned takes just as much care. However, our recipe is laid out simply and clearly so you can make an amazing, non alcoholic version of a classic drink.
Rather than relying on bourbon for flavor, we use brewed black tea. The black tea gives the drink an earthy, rich taste and also a little bit of caffeine. You can, of course, choose a decaf black tea if you’d like but we enjoy the pick me up that our mocktail has!
Sugar, orange slices and bitters are all muddled together and then topped with the tea. A bright red cherry goes on as a garnish and the drink is ready to enjoy! It is simple yet tasty, easy but perfected with skill.
If you are having a hard time finding non alcoholic bitters, opt for old fashioned syrup. This is typically a non-alcoholic syrup that is used in old fashioned drinks to add more orange flavor. It works perfectly in our New Fashioned!
The traditional glass for serving an old fashioned cocktail is called an old fashioned glass. It is shorter and wider than most stemware. It has a flat base that sits directly on the table. It is a small yet sturdy kind of glass.
We want to stick to the tradition of the cocktail as much as possible while still giving the drink our modern, non alcoholic twist. We use the classic old fashioned glass as a nod to our mocktails origin.
We are confident that our New Fashioned will be just as much of a classic as the old fashioned. It is a drink you can enjoy any time. Feeling hot in the summer? Grab a New Fashioned. Cold in the winter? A New Fashioned will help you feel better. Try having a new fashioned at Thanksgiving rather than a boring old fashioned thanksgiving.
The possibilities are endless! Enjoy!
