Black Cherry Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned is one of the world’s oldest and finest cocktails. Commonly made with bourbon or rye whiskey, but gin, brandy, and rum all work really well. This classic cocktail is made by muddling sugar with bitters, then adding alcohol, such as bourbon or whiskey, and a twist of citrus rind. My favorite part is the large, crystal clear ice cube!

Meet the Black Cherry Old Fashioned – a bold, dark, deliciously spiced version of the classic Old Fashioned. Bulleit Bourbon is combined with Bittermans Burlesque Bitters, slightly sweetened with black cherry syrup, poured over a hand-carved rock ice, and garnished with a Luxardo Cherry.

This was one of my favorite cocktails that I photographed for Sourced Craft Cocktails for the holiday season. In Austin? You can book Sourced to bring you everything you need to make the Black Cherry Old Fashioned! Ingredients, ice cubes, glassware, and alcohol. We booked Sourced last night for a Friendsmas that I hosted at my place and everyone had so much fun learning how to make their own cocktails. The clean up was super easy too because Sourced picks up all the dirty glassware.
