Scottsdale’s SOL Mexican Cocina has shared its Old Fashioned recipe with Independent readers.

An Old Fashioned is a cocktail made by muddling sugar with bitters, then adding alcohol, such as whiskey or brandy, and a twist of citrus rind.


  • 2 orange wedges
  • 2 maraschino cherries
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1.5 oz Bulleit’s Bourbon
  • 5 drops bitters
  • 2 oz club soda


Muddle cherries, oranges and sugar together in a glass, add bourbon, pack with ice and fill with club soda. Finish by adding drops of bitters and enjoy.

Located at the Scottsdale Quarter, SOL Mexican Cocina’s menu features Executive Chef Deborah Schneider’s bold, modern interpretations of traditional Coastal Mexican cuisine with a focus on fresh, sustainable ingredients. Designed to echo the expansive sea, sky, and desert of the Baja peninsula, SOL features old world charm juxtaposed with an urban comfort.
