    probably for the men, but have you have drank an Old Fashioned? the recipe looks pretty good


    Ingredients

    1 sugar cube
    3 dashes Angostura bitters
    club soda
    2 ounces rye whisky

    Glass Type: old-fashioned glass
    Instructions

    Place the sugar cube (or 1/2 teaspoon loose sugar) in an Old-Fashioned glass. Wet it down with 2 or 3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a short splash of water or club soda. Crush the sugar with a wooden muddler, chopstick, strong spoon, lipstick, cartridge case, whatever. Rotate the glass so that the sugar grains and bitters give it a lining. Add a large ice cube. Pour in the rye (or bourbon). Serve with a stirring rod.

    That's not a good recipe for an Old fashioned....you're also supposed to mull a wedge of orange (peel and all) as well as one or two maraschino cherries.

    ....and yes, even though I'm not a dude I can tell you that its a great drink. I usually order them if I'm dining in a more upscale steakhouse. otherwise i take my Bourbon straight and bloomed over ice.

    Go to an upscale bar and order one and see if you like it. :dontknow:

    Also, I just noticed another flaw in the recipe in the OP, An Old fashioned doesn't usually contain Club Soda either.
