Old-Fashioned

This is the author's adaptation of James Beard's formula for this American classic. Most people use bourbon, but it can also be made with rum or brandy. There is no garnish of maraschino cherry or orange because, as Beard wrote, "I loathe fruit salad . . . and all the decorations that usually accompany this simple drink."
