"A long awaited date night for my wife and I has arrived. Asked if I could make her a drink before we left to the restaurant, and despite the fact I've been adding a myriad of new cocktails to the repertoire, her order almost never changes… . ”Old Fashioned, please." . Yeah, she's classy ? Well, it just so happens that today is also #nationalscotchday so I thought I’d mix it up a little and add some smokiness to the classic. The result was, in my humble opinion, pretty effin amazing with layers of #delicious complexity and it’s downright dangerous. Definitely my new favorite after a hard day or ya know, pre-gaming a date night."
