Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Old Fashioned Love Story

June 15, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Hey there,

Today's Mixology Monday post was inspired by a romantic movie and is another spin on an Old Fashion. We first made an Old Fashioned in January, and used blood oranges. Typically, an Old Fashioned uses orange and cherry as a garnish only. This version infuses the flavors of the garnish with the alcohol and the alcohol has the essence of the garnish. Similar to the best love stories, where two independent souls become one, in time (thyme). We hope you enjoy. As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online!

This recipe makes 2 drinks. Let's get started!

Let's Make the Garnish!

  1. Slice an orange into a few thin slices.
