The Old Fashioned is the classic cocktail, and has stood the test of time. For a cocktail that’s extra festive and cozy, give it a little twist by using an orange spice simple syrup in place of the traditional demerara! This simple syrup infuses winter orange and warm spice in a way that highlights the rich spice and vanilla in our new 2023 American Whiskey limited release.
