If you’ve been reading Kitchen Konfidence for a little while, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I love a good drink. Sometimes I like to go all out, and make cocktails like: Summer Crush, El Comediante, or Strawberry Letter 22. They’re a bit more involved to prepare, but they taste damn good once everything comes together. Usually however, you can find me drinking an almost-classic Old Fashioned Cocktail. It’s my go-to. My standard. My after-work drink. It’s a cocktail I know I can always prepare with ingredients from my pantry/liquor cabinet. And today, I’m going to share with you my Old Fashioned Cocktail recipe.
But first, a little back story. Several months ago, I tweeted this photo of Black Walnut Bitters that sparked up a conversation with some of my fellow booze-loving, foodie friends (boozie friends?). In particular, Vijay from Noshon.It and Brian from A Thought For Food. We started chatting about our favorite go-to libations, and shortly after, the What I Drink mini-series was born. So today, the three of us are sharing some of our favorite cocktail recipes along with short interviews. Continue reading for my recipe plus links to Vijay’s and Brian’s!
