The Old Fashioned is no stranger to spirited debate. Whether it’s deliberating the type of whiskey, sugar, or garnish, enthusiasts tend to draw a line and stand their ground. Some may prescribe muddling fruit, while the thought alone makes purists red in the face. And don’t even get started on what kind of fruit to use. How you make it says a lot about you. But truth be told, there’s no wrong way to enjoy the drink. As long as it is, in fact, enjoyed.
