One of our favorite old(est) school cocktails is the Old Fashioned. We have posted several recipes and there are dozens of variations. Hailing from the late 1800’s, it was the first drink actually referred to as a “cocktail.” Traditionally made with bourbon, this cocktail is actually quite simple to make. We have experimented with other types of whiskey, such as rye, but also rum, and in certain parts of the USA, an Old Fashioned is even made with brandy, instead of whiskey.
Originally introduced by San Francisco bartender Jon Santer more than a decade ago, the Revolver cocktail is typically made with orange bitters and a dose of coffee liqueur. We decided to take to a whole new level by using a black coffee ice ball so the coffee flavor slowly releases into the bourbon...
The Bourbon Spritz Cocktail offers a bit more flavor than your standard bourbon on the rocks and using an ice ball allows those flavors to mingle and become more complex as you enjoy it.
The floral notes of elderflower liqueur pair remarkably well with the woody aspects of a great bourbon. While quite different from a classic old fashioned cocktail, this lighter, brighter version is quite the palate pleaser and sure to draw compliments on taste and presentation.
