A popular classic cocktail, but with added sparkle!

Old Fashioned Spritz

Don Drapers cocktail of choice, the Old Fashioned is a staple in the cocktail world. We’re of course also big fans of the classic imbibe too. However, we’ve decided to elevate the famous drink with a subtle sparkle and sweet notes of ruby port. A spritz cocktail that will make you especially popular if served at a dinner party!

What makes this recipe different from conventionally complicated cocktails is that you’ll make not only a professional looking cocktail, but also a high quality tasting cocktail in under a minute. You’ll certainly look the pro serving this recipe.

Old Fashioned Spritz

Firstly, all you’ll need are day to day kitchen equipment you’ll have in the kitchen: a tall glass, a sharp knife and a bottle opener. Alongside this, you’ll need a chilled bottle of Pedrino Ruby & Tonic Spritz, a fresh lemon, a handful of ice (enough to fill the glass to the top), and last but not least, your favourite Whiskey.

Right, so now we’re all prepared, let’s get making! 

Fill the tall glass (or glasses) to the top with ice. Next add 25ml of Whiskey. Although we think 25ml gives the perfect balance of flavour, if you’re a big fan of Whiskey, by all means go for the double shot. That said, choice of Whisky/ey is extremely personal, so of course dealers choice here. Following this, top the glass with Pedrino Ruby & Tonic Spritz.


For cut 2 lemon slices and garnish as shown in the cocktail photo.

And there you go, that’s how to make to Old Fashioned Spritz. Enjoy!
