Brown Sugar

Updated: Sep 27, 2023

When it comes to crafting classic cocktails, the Old-Fashioned holds a special place in the hearts of many. This timeless drink has a rich history dating back to the early 19th century and has remained a favorite for its simplicity and sophistication.

Your Grandpa's Old Fashioned Cocktail Cubes have had the traditional flavor of the original sugar used early on, by incorporating the sweetness and depth of flavor offered by brown sugar. Brown sugar enhances your cocktail in so many ways.

Brown sugar is a natural sweetener that retains some molasses content, which gives it a distinctive caramel-like flavor and a hint of richness. Compared to white sugar, brown sugar adds complexity and depth to our Cocktail Cubes, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a more nuanced taste experience. Its flavor profile pairs exceptionally well with the classic ingredients found in an whiskey, bitters, and citrus.

Achieving the perfect balance of flavors is crucial when crafting an Old Fashioned, and brown sugar helps achieve that desired equilibrium. The molasses in brown sugar adds a subtle bitterness that counteracts the sweetness, preventing the drink from becoming overly saccharine. By using brown sugar, we create an Old Fashioned that is well-rounded, with a sophisticated sweetness that doesn't overpower the other elements. Of course we would be remiss if we didn't suggest to serve your cocktail over a large ice cube or in a traditional rocks glass, allowing the flavors to develop and meld as the ice slowly melts.

By incorporating brown sugar into Your Grandpa's Old Fashioned cocktail cubes, we have elevated this classic drink. The subtle sweetness and rich flavors of brown sugar add depth and complexity, enhancing the overall drinking experience. We hope you agree!
