Drinks We Love: Greg's old fashioned

by Negronis Greg

I stumbled upon a drink that has become my favorite; therefore, I am calling it Greg's Old Fashion is a Drink With Greg.

The origins of this drink can be traced back to the classic Old Fashioned, which has been a staple in the cocktail world for over a century. However, I wanted to try it by incorporating a few unique ingredients. Greg's Old Fashion has bourbon, muddled blackberries, and orange bitters. The result is a perfectly balanced drink that is both sweet and smoky.


If you're looking to make this drink at home, here is the recipe:

  • In a glass, muddle two blackberries with a splash of simple syrup.
  •  Add ice to the glass.
  • Pour in 2 ounces of Bourbon.
  • Add a dash of orange bitters.
  • Stir well and garnish with a slice of orange or blackberry. 

While I call this 'Greg Old Fashion,' a few bartenders have put their spin on it and are making it the best today. One is Jane Smith, who works at The Bar in New York City. Her version includes a splash of ginger beer, which adds a nice kick to the drink.

If you're looking for the best place to try my rif on the Old Fashion, I recommend checking out our website, where you can get Old Fashion kits to jump-start your bar setup or backfill bottle in your collection.

Overall, Greg's Old Fashion is a delicious and unique take on the classic cocktail. Whether you're a whiskey lover or just looking to try something new, this drink is worth a try. Thanks for Joining Us on the Adventure. Cheers!
