Video: How to make the delicious Chivas Old Fashioned served at our Heroes Gala

Between the incredible visuals, impressive photo studio and tables laden with candy floss, the celebratory spirit of our Denizen Heroes Gala was carried by the night’s signature cocktails — the Chivas Extra Old Fashioned and the Chivas Extra Espresso Martini. The Old Fashioned, a time-honoured beverage, was expertly made with smooth Chivas Regal Extra whisky, rendering it a refreshing libation for the evening. Unexpectedly simple to make, here is how you can mix your own at home.

Chivas Extra Old Fashioned
Ingredients:
50 ml of Chivas Regal Extra
7.5 ml of Simple Syrup (put equal parts sugar and water in a pan and heat until the sugar dissolves; leave to cool before using)
2 Dashes of Angostura bitters

Method:
Combine all ingredients over ice and stir for 10 seconds. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass (or tumbler) on the rocks and garnish with an orange twist.
