Sentimental Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe

The Old Fashioned Cocktail is one that has a history dating back to the 1800’s and reigns even today as a drink for all walks of life to enjoy. The Sentimental Old Fashioned Cocktail is one that brings two worlds together, a world of history, and one of a time that has passed us by. The champagne syrup that is used in place of the simple syrup is made from champagne that has either gone flat or overaged. This can occur when it is improperly stored in boxes, deep in closets, or just forgotten about. The sentimental aspect reveals itself when the champagne brings back memories of a time long past. The combination of the orange juice ice ball, bitters, and cherries brings a balance between the Champagne syrup and the boldness of the bourbon.
