This has changed my view of Old Fashioned’s. I need to give this a try sometime!

Nice mix….I choose not to add the water if I’m using cubed ice stirring as that will add the water thru dilution. Another twist is I like to use smoked mable syrup instead of simple syrup for a distinctive flavor I enjoy.

Untapped business idea, sure to succeed in WI:

open a bed & breakfast with at least 20 varieties of Bloody Mary on the menu. I don't know what time of day it's appropriate to add these varieties of Old Fashioneds

Scotch. Neat. Preferably peated scotch.

Admittedly, not a real "tailgatey" sort of drink though...

My folks always made them with brandy. Like Cory, I prefer Knob Creek bourbon with a dash of orange bitters, an orange peel and a 1/2 tespoon of syrup from the dark cherries jar.

That's a good one.

And I love how he tested the recipe with his grandfather to get the true verdict.
