The Unexpected Ingredient That Will Majorly Upgrade Your Old Fashioned
The twist of orange rind may be a key component of a classic old fashioned, but it can be replaced by fresh fruits from your local farmers' market for a seasonal touch.
In the summer months, you can add muddled blackberries for some tartness and sweetness, then top your drink off with a twist of lime rind instead of orange.
For a cool weather adaptation, swap your whiskey for spiced rye and replace the white sugar with dark demerara sugar or a simple syrup infused with seasonal spices.
An autumnal twist may involve apple or pumpkin, while winter cocktails can have cranberries or rosemary. You can also add a toasted garnish, or warm the drink up for a unique take.
When you have trouble figuring out which flavors would capture the seasonal flair, just think of the types of baked goods you see each season, and keep it simple.
