35. Old Fashioned
An old fashioned is made with whiskey (typically either bourbon or rye risky), bitters, sugar and a little water, and traditionally served with a twist or an orange slice. It is also Don Draper’s favorite cocktail in Mad Men. That is a testament to its popularities in the 1960s, although the drink had been largely forgotten before the series came out. The old fashioned uses a short, round glass, known as an old fashioned glass. The glass was named for the drink, rather than the other way around – which is a good indication of how popular the drink was.
34. Rum & Coke
Rum and coke is a great example of a simple mixed drink. It’s especially common because the drink relies on only one type of alcohol and many households have cola on hand. Typically a rum and coke will be served on the rocks, although in casual settings this is often omitted. A variation of this mixed drink is the Cuba libre, which has the distinction of also using lime juice. In many parts of the world, rum and coke is another name for the Cuba libra, and the lime juice is considered an option ingredient.
33. Jack & Coke
Made with Jack Daniels whiskey and Coca-Cola, a jack and coke has a similar construction to the rum and coke mentioned above. The drink has provided a significant branding opportunity for the companies involved, and the two are often sold in close proximity in stores that sell alcohol. Jack Daniels has also produced a premixed canned drink that has the same flavors, although cola is used rather than the Coca-Cola specifically.
