Old Fashioned?

samtron608 | Oct 28, 2010 09:54 AM

what exactly is an Old Fashioned? I see posts that show it with Bourbon...then other sites how it with Scotch.
what is the proper spirit to use when making an old fashioned (i assume basic old fashioned is suger, bitters, orange peel, ice, little water and the spirit)?
are there particular spirits that are better for Old Fashioned. I mean, i doubt Johnny Walker Green would work...i've had it with Johnny Black and it was good.
but bourbon?

any thoughts and suggestions on the best way to prepare an Old Fashioned?
