Such a no muss, no fuss way of crafting one of my favorite type of cocktail. Thank you @thedrycocktail!
I have a random assortment of some agave spirits so I thought I'd give their tequila old fashioned a whirl. Totally legit. Super smooth to sip on. Great for when you know you're not in the mood for just a regular old fashioned since it's a little lighter. Might try this a mezcal next time. 6 more packets to go!
This is a game-changer. I am a stickler for 2 drinks: Old Fashioneds and Martinis. One thing I've learned when ordering an Old Fashioned is that if you're not at a top craft cocktail bar, is that it will either be super hot and eventually get diluted/sweet enough at one point to taste somewhat good, or it's a watery sugary hot mess right off the bat. The Old Fashioned dry cocktails though ARE as good as a top craft cocktail bar in taste. I can't describe it, this is some magic powder. I can taste the spices and cherry, I can smell the orange. I don't even need an orange peel for a garnish (though I still do it). The Old Fashioned is delicious with amazing flavor right from the beginning of the drink. You can wait a little bit for the ice to melt if you're bourbon or whisky is a little strong, but for me it started great and just got better. I wish I could order this in a bar. This is really something else, absolutely recommend. Excellent.
Was in the mood for a frozen, strawberry margarita, so tried this. FANTASTIC!!! Put in some tequila, packet of powder, a couple of strawberries, some ice, blend, and VOILA! No lie - the absolute best tasting margarita I’ve ever had...including any I’ve ever had in a high end establishment (at well under high end cost).
Congratulations! You’ve hit the magic recipe!
I had pretty much given up on the idea of a truly proper cocktail made anywhere outside of the bars that have honed the process, my home bar or anywhere else for that matter. When you think of anything being made into a powder it immediately raises an eyebrow… especially when it comes to citrus! But WOW. My mind was truly blown away. Can’t believe they were able to achieve this level of quality in citrus, syrup and sugar. I like to think I have had my fair share of crafted cocktails and these did not miss a beat. There was no separation in taste between the quality ingredients you get in your favorite bar and these little powder packets. I was hoping something like this would eventually come along but didn’t think it would be this good from the packaging to the taste. So stoked on these!! A perfect gift for anyone looking to step up their home bar or vacation!
The best Old Fashioned I have ever had. It was so portable and easy to carry. The flavors are balanced with an excellent taste. I won’t bother buying mixers anymore, this is all I will buy, for the home bar too!
What a fantastic idea that is executed flawlessly. New Fashioned's Old Fashioned exceeded my expectations. Truly sharp design and packaging that shipped and arrived at lightning speed. We took this with us on vacation and didn't have to think about packing a bunch of extra stuff for cocktail makings. Just some good whiskey and this magical dust. Can't recommend this stuff enough.
