If you consider yourself a man of style then there’s no doubt you would have at some point mastered the art of the Old Fashioned, a classic cocktail enjoyed by magnificent bastards all over the world.

In case you need to brush up on your cocktail crafting skills, D’Marge has teamed up with drinks trolley essential Maker’s Mark to show you how to make your very own Old Fashioned and impress your friends, loved ones and lady in the style and comfort of your own home.


But, what makes Maker’s Mark an Old Fashioned essential? “The great thing about an Old Fashioned is it makes whisky more approachable. Maker’s Mark is perfect for the job. Switching rye out for wheat makes for a sweeter, softer spirit and in turn, a gentle sipping Old Fashioned with a long, warm finish,” says Dale Schoon of Earl’s Juke Joint.

Now is actually the perfect time to get familiar with your cocktail basics as this week marks the inaugural Maker’s Mark Old Fashion Week from May 12th to 20th in leading venues around Sydney. Master the cocktail yourself, then take your newfound skills to some of the city’s top watering holes.
