Celebrate Old Fashioned Week with Monkey Shoulder

Here’s how to drag the Old Fashioned into 2021

Yes, we said it, the Old Fashioned Week may be old fashioned. Okay, yes, it’s a classic, but perhaps it needs a bit of a shake up; not a massive one, just enough not to break a sweat.

In our view, the classic Old Fashioned perhaps has too many steps. There’s a lot of measuring, crushing, and pouring. It can really be trimmed down – giving you The Lazy Old Fashioned!

We know the Monkey bottle is awesome.

But its also crazy useful as a mixing jug. Just follow the below recipe and you will have12 cocktails perfected in less than 30 seconds, ready to be enjoyed at any time.

The Lazy Old Fashioned


  • Monkey Shoulder
  • Sugar Syrup
  • Angostura bitters
  • Orange zest


  1. Remove 150ml of Monkey Should Whisky from the bottle.
  2. Enjoy this neat, or on ice with friends while you use the 600ml for the Lazy Old Fashioned mix.
  3. Pour the 120 ml sugar syrup into the bottle.
  4. Add 24 dashes of Angostura Bitters into bottle.
  5. Now shake the bottle with all the ingredients inside.
  6. Take a marker and write Lazy Old fashioned over the label.
  7. Chill in the fridge, and when you are ready, pour yourself a ready mixed old fashioned over a glass with chilled dry ice and garnish with an orange zest.
  8. Now you have 12 cocktails in one bottle ready to be served

Monkey Shoulder Whisky is available at these participating retailers.
