Depending on who is ordering the drink, the components change. Frank Sinatra and Ernest Hemingway each had different ideas about how the drink should be prepared.

Every cocktail consists of two components
The basic spirit is the initial component. For instance, brandy, rye whiskey, or bourbon can all be used to make an old-fashioned.
The sugar is added next. In order to prevent the citrus juice’s acidity from overpowering the other tastes in your beverage, a sprinkle of sugar will help balance it out.
The peel of the orange appears last. Swizzle sticks swirl your beverage while releasing oils from the peel that give it a stronger taste and scent.
