A new cocktail made with gin and vodka, aged in old-fashioned bitters, has become a hit in the UK.
The drinks, created by cocktail enthusiasts from the UK, the US and Ireland, are described by one drinker as “the best new cocktails made with gin and vodka”.
The original drink is called ‘The Devil’s Favorite Drink’, but the cocktail now goes by the name ‘The Old Fashioned’.
The cocktail, which was first made in the US in 1937, is still widely available in pubs and bars across the UK and Ireland.

“The drink has also caught on in other countries, with the UK’s new Queen’s Jubilee celebrations having made use of the drink during their weekend events.
Earlier this year, the UK launched a £1.7m campaign called ‘Old Fashioned’ aimed at encouraging more people to try the cocktail.
