Cocktails at Home – The Old Fashioned


During this strange & uncertain time, one thing is certain, we miss a good cocktail.  So we’ve decided to show you exactly how to make cocktails at home, with the help from our amazing bar team.

Smokestacks foundations are built on Funk, Soul, Jazz, Blues & carefully crafted New Orleans inspired cocktails.  

Now, we know that not everyone has access to bar equitment, but guess what?

You don’t need it to make some of your favourite classic cocktails from the comfort & safety of your own home. 

Our teams are currently self-isolating & are unable to do what they do best behind the bar, so, we’ve decided to put together a series of How To Videos with our bar team to team you the tricks & tips of our trade.  

The Method  

Josh has brought the bar to his garden in self isolation to talk you though exactly how to make a simple Old Fashioned at home.`

The Facts 

During our cocktail experiences at Smokestack we love to share the amazing history behind the household names in cocktails. Josh has given us a little insight into The Old Fashioned!
