Some of you might remember my cocktail of the week from about 4 years ago.
Well it’s back, but this time around it is the cocktail of the month. Every 3rd Thursday, there will be a tasty cocktail for you to try over the weekend. I missed all the fun concoctions and libations.
Since it’s winter, first cocktail up is the Warm Old Fashioned. I tasted the cold version of this drink at my Frangelico Le Bella Vita party last November. I thought “Hey, why not warm it up?” So I did and you should too. Sipping this by the fire on a blustery night? Yes, please.
I love caramel color liquors in the wintertime, and I love the core warming effect of this Warm Old Fashioned. The Frangelico gives this Old Fashioned a sweet nutty flavor, and with a flamed orange peel as garnish, it’s pretty perfect.
The Warm Old Fashioned
You will need:
– 2 oz. of Frangelico
– 2 oz. of Wild Turkey Bourbon
– 1/2 oz. of Triple Sec
– 8 dashes of Angostura Bitters
– Flamed Orange Peel
In a small sauce pan, combine and warm all ingredients on low for 2 minutes.
Divide and pour into 2 highball glasses and garnish with flamed orange peel.
Cheers and stay warm y’all.

As fall has begun to truly set in here in the Pacific Northwest, I’ve been turning towards my favorite Bourbon cocktails to keep me warm. An acquired taste for me, I really began enjoying this spirit just last year, and have been experimenting with it ever since! While I have a few favorite concoctions, this one keeps things nice and simple – and therefore is on my go-to list! This drink is called Fred + Ginger, it’s strong enough for a man, pretty enough for a gal. It will be sure to please either party. – Cassandra
Fred + Ginger
1.5 oz of Bourbon
1.5 oz Ginger Liqueur
.5 oz fresh lemon juice
Combine all three ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon, and sip!
