Bourbon Old Fashioned Gift Set Sweeteners 

A sweetener is almost always used in making an Old Fashioned. A sweetener adds a subtle sweetness that opens up the bourbon or rye aroma. 

Traditionally a sugar cube is often used as sweetener, however this is difficult to dissolve. Instead we prefer syrups as these dissolve quickly and evenly. A simple sugar syrup works well but we can also add honey or maple syrup to your gift. 

For our Old Fashioned drink gifts, we use syrups that are free from artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, and sweeteners. 

Bitters For Your DIY Old Fashioned Kit

The Angostura bitters are the most common bitters used in making this cocktail. This is a safe option that reproduces the original drink flavours of for your DIY old fashioned cocktail kit. Bitters add complexity and dimension to the bourbon or rye or Scotch and just two dashes will do the trick. 

However, if you are looking to experiment further, changing the bitters can bring in interesting and unusual flavors. 

Old Fashioned Gift Garnishes

The Old Fashioned is not quite complete without a garnish. 

The classic garnish is the lemon twist or an orange peel. Occasionally, maraschino cherries work well too.

Ice For The Best Old Fashioned Gift Set

The Old Fashioned is a cocktail meant to be sipped and savored slowly. Adding poor quality ice can ruin this experience, turning the drink into a watery mess. Avoid small ice cubes to your Old Fashioned cocktail. 

We can add in large ice cube trays that create ice that melts slowly, allowing the flavours and aromas of the drink to reach its fullest expression. 

The proper ice helps achieve a silky, viscous texture that makes this drink hugely popular.

Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit Glassware

The Old Fashioned is one of the few cocktails that actually has a glass named after it. The traditional Old Fashioned glass should comfortably hold large ice cubes and the liquor. 

This is also known as the rocks glass or the lowball glass. We can add a touch of class to your old fashioned cocktail kit with special glassware.
