Warmer weather is finally here, and that means it’s patio season! With everyone staying home a little more than usual, I’ve been getting creative with some of my favorite summertime activities like happy hour on the patio. This time at home has finally given us the chance to finish setting up and stocking our bar. This means I’ve been spending a ton of time experimenting with new cocktails, but I’ll always be a fan of the classics!
It’s no secret that a classic Old Fashioned is one of our favorite date night drinks, so I was so excited to try out DeKuyper Classic Ol’ Fashion Liqueur. Warm weather is meant for cooling off with an ice-cold drink, and this liqueur is an effortless way to make a picture-perfect cocktail every time.
Since we recently had time to spend setting up our backyard, we finally purchased some furniture for the deck. We decided this would be the perfect drink to tryout for outdoor happy hours – at home! So we took the covers off the patio furniture, filled some bowls with snacks (popcorn is always my favorite), mixed up some drinks, and headed out to our own little happy hour on the patio!
Typically, to make a standard Old Fashioned, you would need rocks glasses, a muddler, sugar cubes, large ice molds, bitters, an orange peel, and whiskey. With DeKuyper Classic Ol’ Fashion Liqueur the process much easier. All you need is the liqueur, a rocks glass, ice mold, an orange peel, and bourbon. So simple!
You can watch the tutorial and find the recipe below:
