The Perfect Holiday Craft Whiskey Cocktail: The Old Fashioned
Whiskey made a strong comeback in 2016 and with it, a resurgence of the classic whiskey cocktail. And we say it’s about time! Why? Not only does it both tickle and warm your taste buds, it’s also the epitome of class. Served in elegant highball glasses, whiskey goes back to a time when men wore hats and women dressed up for dinner, all while Frank Sinatra crooned through the radio. And what’s not to love about that? This holiday season, why not throw on some classic Bing Crosby and Rat Pack Christmas music, and whip up your own classic: Rebecca’s Old Fashioned. It’s both smooth and bold, and about as iconic as Bing, Frank, Sammy, Dino and Judy, and adds class to any occasion – no hats or dress-up required. Rebecca’s Old Fashioned 2 ounces Rebecca Creek Whiskey® 2 small sugar cubes 2 dashes Angostura bitters Splash of soda water Orange twist 1 Bing (Crosby) cherry Using an old-fashioned or highball glass, place sugar cubes into glass, add the Angostura bitters and splash of soda. Muddle together until sugar is dissolved and add Rebecca Creek Whiskey. Carefully lower a large ice cube and stir briefly to ensure everything is mixed just so. Peel a bit of rind from an orange and rub the rim before adding the rind into the glass. Gently place a cocktail skewer through the Bing cherry and place on top of the glass. For best results, serve with holiday cheer under mistletoe.
