Maple Cotton Candy Old Fashioned
We are kicking off November and Old Fashioned Month with this Maple Cotton Candy Old Fashioned! The very first old-fashioned is credited to the bartender and esteemed bourbon aristocrat, James E. Pepper. It was a private social club, called the Pendennis Club, in Louisville, Kentucky. James created this drink in 1880 in Louisville before he brought it to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel bar in New York City. There have been thousands of different variations since that first Old-Fashioned. They are especially popular this time of year as bourbon and the holiday season go hand-in-hand.
Enjoy the last few weeks of autumn with a fall-themed classic! Shoutout to Seldom Seen Maple and their Maple Cotton Candy, we used it as a one-of-a-kind garnish/sweetener. The drink itself contains our Black Reserve Bourbon, Angostura Bitters, and one bar spoon of Maple Syrup. The cotton candy enhances that pleasant, gentle, soothing maple aroma. Add an orange peel to refresh your senses with a citrus scent. Do yourself a favor and enjoy a Maple Cotton Candy Old Fashioned this weekend, you won’t be disappointed. Cheers!
