I like my dark beers and I like my whiskies. When it comes to whiskey, I usually go on the rocks, but as of late, I find myself leaning more and more towards a drink called an Old Fashioned. Some might say "That's a grandpa drink" but you know what I say to that? You grandpa has some good taste when it comes to a mixed drink! While in Chicago, I had some amazing Old Fashioned drinks and they all came from our hotel bar. there is something about adding the orange peel with the oils, the simple syrup and the bitters to whiskey topped off with a good cherry that makes me smile.
