Old Fashioned

古典鸡尾酒

Vantage Shanghai - - HIGH LIFE 慢生活 -

古典鸡尾酒可能是最精致的鸡尾酒之一,简单地用糖和苦精调味,唤醒基底烈酒的复杂风味,从19世纪至20世纪的大部分时间里,它都是人们最常饮用的时髦饮料。美剧《广告狂人》里Don最爱的“罪恶的快感古典鸡尾酒”就是古典鸡尾酒的创意版本。“罪恶的快感古典鸡尾酒”比起古典鸡尾酒多了几片橙子和齁甜的马拉斯奇诺樱桃(奶油小方顶部点缀的那种糖水樱桃),末了兑点苏打水。要是喝这个版本的古典鸡尾酒上了瘾,千万别有罪恶感,毕竟酒精原本就是为消除烦恼而生。

The Old Fashioned is arguably one the most elegant cocktails. Made by muddling sugar with bitters, the complexity of its whisky base spirit fully arouses the palate. During the late 19th to mid—20th century, Old Fashioneds became society’s beverage de rigeur. Notable fans in fiction include Don Draper in the popular TV series Mad Men, who even counts his own signature variation. Compared to the original recipe, Don Draper’s Old Fashioned adds a few slices of orange peel and a Maraschino cherry (the decorative cherry often seen on top of cakes), and finishes it with soda for an addictively drinkable libation.
