52nd street old fashioned cocktail recipe from Gallaghers Steakhouse

See also

Although the cocktail is called an old fashioned, the funny thing about it is that every bartender seems to make it a little differently — not necessarily a good thing. But, jaded fans of the cocktail can take heart: This version from the historic Gallaghers Steakhouse in New York City's theatre district is about as close to perfection as you can get.


  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3 dashes Angostura orange bitters
  • ½ fl oz water
  • ½ fl oz Demerara syrup
  • 1 fl oz Old Overholt rye
  • 1 ½ fl oz Heaven Hill Bonded Bourbon
  • Lemon peel and orange peel, for garnish


1. Fill a mixing glass with ice, and add all of the ingredients except for the lemon and orange peel. Stir.

2. Strain over a 2-by-2-in ice cube in a double old fashioned glass.

3. Garnish with lemon and orange peel.
