Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Coffee Old Fashioned

July 25, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There!

We are no strangers to old-fashioneds and we are big coffee lovers so it was only a matter of time before we infused them both! Not only did we use a coffee flavored whiskey and coffee bitters... we also made an espresso simple syrup! *Chef's Kiss*  This cocktail is very coffee forward, feel free to adjust the ratio of the espresso simple syrup to dial it back if you like. All of the details are below. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
