The Old Fashioned is a simple drink, with just the spirit base (in this case the delicious Angostura 1919 Rum), sugar and bitters (Piccolo uses a 50/50 blend of Angostura Orange Bitters and Angostura Aromatic Bitters), so this is a drink where the spirit really shines.

For this month’s photoshoot we headed to Old Mate’s Place in Sydney’s Clarence Street. With Dre Walters and Dan Noble leading the charge this is a joint that is serious about its cocktailing. This drink features their house-made labour of love the Pea & Pear Shrub. Noble says: “The drink is a light, effervescent delight. The perfect cocktail for the spritz lover in all of us.”
