Other than a glass of champagne I do not drink. Never really have. But Tim, at the ripe age of 52, is just starting to enjoy sitting with a glass of whisky or some kind of mixed drink. He got a really nice whisky kit from my brother for Christmas and has been learning new drink recipes. But his go to will probably always be an Old Fashion. He was first introduced to it a couple of years ago when we were in Disneyworld and it has been his drink of choice ever sense.
Simple Old Fashion Recipe:
Check out my video on YouTube and see how they make this simple easy drink: HERE
- Large ice ball
- Squirt of simple syrup
- 2-3 dashes of Orange Bitters
- 2 oz of Bulleit Whisky or use a jigger (which is 1.5 oz)
- Stir and add an orange slice peel (we didn’t have an orange and skipped this)
Here are some supplies you may want for your Old Fashion
Ice Ball Maker – This one from Amazon makes 4 beautiful ice balls.
Jigger – I love the look of this one. It looks sharp and classy
Whisky – There are a lot of different whisky available. They all seemed to enjoy Bulleit
Classy Whisky Glasses – Sure you can drink out of any glass but why would you when you can drink out of these
