Old Fashioned (No-Proof, Hannah)

  • Base Spirit Iced Tea
  • Preparation Stirred
  • Flavor Sweet & Oaky
  • Served On the Rocks

The Old Fashioned is literally the original cocktail and the inspiration for thousands of other libations that followed. Still, legendary bartender Chris Hannah managed to put his own spin on the standard.

At New Orleans’ Jewel of the South, Hannah’s collaboration with Nick Detrich, he created this no-proof Old Fashioned variation. Inspired by the local tradition of abstaining from booze during Lent, the alcohol free variant delivers the joy of the drink nonetheless.

This riff is sweet with strong oak notes. Built properly, it looks exactly like the real deal. (Plus, it’s much easier to make.)
