Pitcher Old Fashioneds

We have provided several recipes for party-size mixed drinks to save time and provide our dear, gentle readers with an opportunity to truly enjoy their guests instead of chipping away at ice and slinging cocktails to the four winds. Here is a great old fashion recipe to serve by the pitcher.

1 fifth of good bourbon

1 ounce of sugar

6 teaspoons of maraschino cherry juice

6 drops of bitters

Orange slices with peel

Lemon slices with peel


Push and twist two orange and lemon peels into the bourbon for at least one night prior to serving. Add sugar, cherry juice, and bitters to the bourbon and pour into a covered pitcher. Place one lemon slice and one orange slice in the bottom of each glass and top with ice before pouring each drink.
