Cold Fashioned: a perfect cocktail for sipping in isolation

Westward Whiskey is one of the leaders of America’s craft distilling movement.

Based in Portland, Oregon, it is the largest craft distiller on the US West Coast and a leading maker of single malts.

Now Westward Whiskey has partnered with Mr Black Coffee Liqueur to help you take your happy hour online - and perhaps share with some friends over a Zoom call.

The pair has created a modern cocktail that can be made in your home kitchen in under two minutes - a new take on Espresso Martinis or Old Fashioneds.

Meet the Cold Fashioned, which has only four ingredients and three quick steps.

The ingredients are:
  • 30ml Westward American Single Malt Whiskey
  • 30ml Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
  • Ice to taste
  • Orange peel
Mix the Westward Whiskey and Mr Black in a mixing glass. Place an ice cube into a chilled glass, and pour the liquid over the ice and garnish with an orange peel twist. Simples.

I tried it and it was pretty bloody delicious. My wife added a small amount of milk for a girlier version.

You'll find the ingredients you need at Dan Murphy’s or Vintage Cellars stores with Westward Whiskey $130.00 a bottle and Mr Black $55.99.
