2022 Canadian Artisan Spirit of Year: Ancient Grains!

Ride or Die

Level of Complexity: Home Bartender Friendly

This is simply an old fashioned riff using Ancient Grains Young Whisky, which gives the old fashioned a lovely peppery spice note. The maple and bitters add a winter warming layer so you can really bunker down with this cocktail, get cozy, and become best friends in no time.

The old fashioned style of cocktail dates back to the 1800’s, then moving forward people would hit the bar and ask for their drink to be made the ‘old fashioned’ way. With a spirit of choice (usually bourbon) sugar and bitters, stirred down over ice to dilute and chill.
