Cognac Old Fashion

The Old Fashion cocktail dates back to the early 19th century and the name to the late 19th century. According to Esquire, the original Old Fashion was created at the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky by mixing bourbon, bitters, club soda and muddled sugar and adding ice. The drink was made in honor of Colonel James E. Pepper, a 19th century bourbon distiller. Mr. Pepper later brought the original Old Fashion recipe to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel bar in New York City.

Today, most Old Fashion recipes involve muddling angostura bitters, a sugar cube and/or a cherry in a rocks glass and topping it up with whiskey and ice. The drink is often garnished with an orange peel or wedge.

The Old Fashion has experienced a revival in recent years as Don Draper, star of the popular television series Mad Men often drinks Old Fashions when he is out on the town.

The Rémy Martin XO Old Fashion

Cognac often acts as versatile mixer in many cocktail recipes. The cognacs used as mixers in cocktails, however, are generally younger V.S. (cognacs at least 2 years old) and V.S.O.P. (at least four years old) cognacs.

Rémy Martin has taken the bold step and recommended that its XO Excellence cognac be used to make a Rémy Martin XO Old Fashion
