There are few things better in this world than a classic Old Fashioned. It’s the perfect drink to sip on if you’re sitting in front of the fire, soaking in a bubble bath, or curling up with a book. I’ve been trying to make the ultimate old-fashioned and perfecting my technique and think I finally have it! My secret is Old Forester 86 Proof. I’m working with them for the next couple of months and am excited to tour their distillery in Louisville in March and learn more about the brand. I’m also excited to learn how to make more bourbon-based cocktails!
I did a how-to video with them on how to make this cocktail. Check out the recipe and how-to video below!
