    I do not understand, how bartender could still muddle the fruit for Old Fashioneds!
    The Old Fashioned is a precious drink – one of the oldest though still the best, if it is made right!
    Muddle some citrus and a maraschino cherry [which is anyway one of the bar-sins] is just destroying my faith into a good bar.
    Thats beside of combining great spirits with mediocre, mass produced liqueurs [like Southern Comfort] or “Triple Sec” [it is in quotation marks, because it is a Triple Sec Curaçao or a bitter orange liqueur].
    The mentioning of Sweet & Sour and Sprite in a cocktail doesn’t surprise, though doesn’t help either.
