@Dcoronadom not sure what youre looking for. I listed the ingredients and directions so thats the recipe. If you are looking for where it came from its the traditional Old Fashioned recipe that bartenders have been using for ages (over 100 years). It wasn't until Prohibition that the Old Fashioned got bastardized with all sorts of muddled fruits in an effort to hide the taste of the poor quality alcohol that was available then. Drink author/historian David Wondrich has written about this and thats a great place to start if you want more info. Hope that answers your question.
