Smoked Old Fashioned with a Twist

Table of Contents

I am going to let you in on a little secret. I used to HATE Old Fashioneds. I know, crazy right?? Hear me out…it took me a while to enjoy bourbon again after one too many college nights gone wrong. BUT I have officially crossed the threshold of that terror and can finally start enjoying drinks with bourbon in them again.

Now, since then, I have had quite a few classic Old Fashioneds, but I recently discovered a new way to enjoy them: with vanilla bourbon. I know it can be seen as a faux-pas to put vanilla bourbon in an Old Fashioned, but oh my it is so good. So, if you are like me and are struggling to get back into drinking bourbon cocktails, this one will be the perfect kickstart for you!

This Old Fashioned is great with Cinnamon Smoke Dust, but just as good with Bourbon Barrel, too!
