You need a Martini glass + shaker.
Add in the shaker:
1,5cc kahlua (= Coffee liquor)
1,5cc liquid cane sugar

Old Fashioned, the choice of Esger, our Sales Manager:
1 sugar cube (or 1 bar spoon simple syrup)
2 dashes Angostura bitter
2 cc rye or bourbon
1 Orange twist

Muddle the sugar cube and bitters with one bar spoon of water at the bottom of a chilled rocks glass. (If using simple syrup, combine bitters and one bar spoon of syrup.) Add rye or bourbon. Stir.
Add one large ice cube, or three or four smaller cubes. Stir until chilled and properly diluted, about 30 seconds. Slip orange twist on the side of the cube.
