Tresetti”s Do Good Old Fashioned

By Chris Murphy
If you are ever in need of a cocktail, Tresetti’s has been one of the Modesto standards since 1994. Whether a quick happy hour, or an evening out, or late night out with friends, the bar at Tresetti’s is a winner, whether you are inside or outside on one of Modesto’s best patios, you are in a good space. We shared a cocktail with Jordan Maisetti, and he shared a bit of his cocktail philosophy as we remembered great stories about the last Jim Harrelson of Do Good Distillery.

“When making cocktails, it is important to have quality ingredients but it is even more important to have a quality base. This where Do Good has excelled. It is a perfect base for every drink. From their gin to their smoked whiskeys, each has its own unique flavor that enhances every cocktail they go into. We chose to do a Do Good Cherry Wood Smoked Old Fashion, “The Do Good Fashion”. This cocktail has amazing flavors. The sweet Luxardo Cherry and orange slice combined with the smokiness from the whiskey, it is perfection”

We completely agree with Jordan and enjoyed one of these amazing tasty treats prepared by the super-friendly and extremely capable Angela Work. This is an amazing traditional drink and you can taste every flavor. We recommend that you stop by Tresetti’s and try one. If you feel the need to make one yourself, please use this recipe.
