Old Fashioned with a Fruity Twist

This is a very simple variation on the classic Old Fashioned cocktail. We’ve simply swapped in a blackberry syrup and added cinnamon tincture to add flavor and spice. It’s not an overly fruity drink – it’s well rounded and the blackberry pairs nicely with the whiskey and cinnamon.

I’d probably suggest this one as more of a “fall” drink (but who am I kidding – I’d drink this anytime!)
