In celebration of Father's Day we are taking a classic view on what dads want and love. What's more classic than an Old Fashioned? Using Red Camper Orange Absinthe Deliciousness from our "Classic Dad" Gift Bundle we were able to give the classic cocktail a twist.
Originating from Kentucky, the Old Fashioned has been adapted through the years but always is a way to celebrate the taste of good Whiskey. Each bartender has a way of making an Old Fashioned but in the end it is a simple and easy recipe to follow.
We brought to life this take of an Old Fashioned from Red Camper, which resulted in many rounds. Have fun!
2 oz Whiskey (of your father's choosing)
1/2 tsp Absinthe Orange Deliciousness
1/2 tsp Bourbon Cocktail Cherry Syrup
5 drops Aromatic Bitters
1-2 Bourbon Cocktail Cherries
1 Orange Peel
1. Pour Whiskey over ice in glass.
2. Add the Absinthe Orange Deliciousness, bourbon cocktail cherry juice, and bitters. Stir gently.
3. Garnish with bourbon cocktail cherries and orange zest.
You don't have to be an expert bartender to master and enjoy this recipe. An Old Fashioned is classic for cocktail hours, poker nights, and hanging out by the BBQ. Celebrate Dad this year with experiences of good food, company and whiskey.
Happy Father's Day!
