The old-fashioned was a popular drink during Prohibition, as it was simple to mix: a few ounces of bourbon or whiskey were combined with a sugar cube or sugary mixer, meant to conceal the low-quality alcohol. In Studio 54’s era, the Seven and Seven was a popular highball, made of Seagram’s Seven whiskey and 7 Up.
