Old Fashioned Cocktail
With a Holiday Twist
What is an Old-Fashioned Cocktail?
An old-fashioned cocktail is a classic and iconic alcoholic beverage that was invented many years ago. The Old Fashioned is a light, refreshing drink, made with bourbon or whiskey, sugar and bitters. Try our holiday twist on an old-fashioned cocktail by muddling in some orange to give it a festive holiday flare.
But First, Create the Perfect Ambiance for your Holiday Party!
When it comes to setting the tone for a party or event, tables are an important part of the equation as they create the ambience for your celebration. Not only do they provide a focal point for guests to gather around, but they also serve as places where people will spend a significant amount of time together eating, drinking and catching up through old memories shared or creating new ones.
It's essential your dining room looks and feels the part. A tablecloth, simple centerpiece (if needed), and placeholders that fit the theme will delight everyone who attends and make them feel special, even when they are sitting down to eat or engage in conversation. Once you have created a perfect tablescape, it is easy to select the perfect drink to accompany it.
