Congratulations - you’re about to learn and enjoy a true craft cocktail experience from the comfort of your own home.
We're so glad you're here. Let's dive right in:
WARM & TOASTY
In this month's kit you'll be making a classic Old Fashioned & a Toasted Old Fashioned. We wouldn’t be where we are without those that came before. So this month we'll build quality cocktails with the tride and true basics: sugar, bitters, water and spirit. This is where it all began... So let's begin!
We've got all the details on how to bring these two cocktails to life as well as learn a ton along the way.
Here we go!
When your kit arrives, you'll receive two recipe card keepsakes complete with all the instructions you'll need to make your Old Fashioneds. Looking for more? Follow along with Burley Ben as he makes both the Classic Old Fashioned and the Toasted Old Fashioned for extra fun facts, techniques and tips.
As you know, your kit does not include alcohol. This means you 1) don't have to sign for your package (yay!) and 2) get to support your local liquor stores (double yay!). Here are a few of our recommendations for the whiskey you'll need for your Old Fashioneds:
Old Forester 86 Proof
MIDDLE OF THE ROAD
Woodford Reserve Small Batch Bourbon
Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon
Your second recipe, the Toasted Old Fashioned calls for 100 proof whiskey (rye or bourbon preferred). We recommend going ahead and treating yourself to something like Rittenhouse Rye or Old Forester 100, though in your video tutorial we'll let you know how you can get the 'toasted' effect without it.
