This Good Old Fashioned Cocktail is one of the oldest mixed drink recipes around! Using only 4 ingredients, it comes together quickly!
As I have been mentioning over the last few months, both my hubby and I have been experimenting a bit more with drink concoctions. We love to whip up a good cocktail in the evening and relax on the back patio.
I’m more of a “sugar and sweet” type of gal. I prefer margaritas, daiquiri’s, Bailey’s, John Daley, etc. Whereas my hubby loves his drinks a bit more strong like these Old Fashioned Cocktails.
Maybe your tastes favor his and you too will prefer this?? As we explore new drinks, I have quickly realized that there are SO many varieties of the same drink. If you have a margarita at one restaurant and then head to another, chances are, the drink will be different. That is the case with Old Fashioned Cocktails as well. This is merely one version of the classic, but nonetheless, its tasty!
