History:

The Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail with a history that dates back to the early 19th century. Its origins are deeply rooted in American cocktail culture, specifically during the rise of mixology in the mid-1800s. However, the term "Old Fashioned" itself was not used until later in the century.

The term "cocktail" was defined in the May 1806 issue of "The Balance and Columbian Repository" as a stimulating liquor composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters. This definition matches the recipe for the Old Fashioned, and some consider the Old Fashioned to be the first "true" cocktail.

Throughout the 19th century, bartenders began experimenting with more complex cocktail creations, adding various fruits, liqueurs, and other ingredients to their drinks. By the 1860s, many patrons were yearning for simpler drinks, akin to the "original" cocktails of earlier decades. They began ordering their drinks in the "old-fashioned" style, meaning they wanted a simple mix of spirits, sugar, water, and bitters.

The first documented use of the term "Old Fashioned" for a Bourbon whiskey cocktail was at the Pendennis Club, a gentlemen's club in Louisville, Kentucky. Bartender James E. Pepper is said to have invented the drink in the 1880s, and he later brought the recipe to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel bar in New York City. This helped popularize the drink on a national level.

Despite its simplicity, the Old Fashioned fell out of favor in the mid-20th century, during the Prohibition era, when poorer-quality spirits were masked with a variety of flavorings. After Prohibition ended, cocktails moved towards a trend of more complex and elaborate concoctions, further pushing the Old Fashioned aside.

However, the Old Fashioned has enjoyed a significant resurgence in the 21st century, largely due to a renewed interest in classic cocktails. Popular media, like the TV show "Mad Men," have also played a role in its comeback. The Old Fashioned, in its timeless simplicity, has once again become a staple in bars and cocktail menus around the world.
