Perfect Old Fashioned Cocktail
Like many of the great cocktails that were created in America and have gone "international," the Old Fashioned is sadly a mere shadow of its former self. Nowadays, in the majority of bars across the country, your barkeep has probably muddled some heinous mélange of sugar, orange, pineapple, and cherry into your Old Fashioned, delivering a sickly sweet mess that might even be — god forbid — shaken to within an inch of its life. Most of this artificial frippery was most likely added during Prohibition, when many drinks were doctored in such a way so their base spirit was rendered tasteless. In actual fact, the Old Fashioned Whiskey Cocktail is a simple, no-nonsense affair that can be made by any budding home mixologist that has in their possession the following: American whiskey (a peppery rye will deliver the best results), Angostura bitters (or feel free to sub in any other type as your imagination allows), sugar, a spoon, and some good quality ice.

Old-Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls
I thought about changing up a traditional cinnamon roll recipe by adding nuts or other exotic spices; but then I took a step back. What about good old-fashioned cinnamon rolls? Sure, bacon, maple, honey, Jell-O-flavored cinnamon rolls may be fun, but sometimes comfortable and easy food is even better.  These are old-fashioned cinnamon rolls full of butter, sugar, and cinnamon with a simple powdered sugar glaze.
