Maple, Brown Sugar Bourbon, & Thyme Old Fashioned

Old Fashioned Friday. That should be a thing. As of late I have developed a bit of an obsession with bourbon. It’s my preferred libation. The Old Fashioned is my favorite way to enjoy this spirit so naturally I have been experimenting with the ingredients while still trying to keep it relatively simple. While its classic form is perfectly satisfactory, it is a fun drink to experiment with. My first drink in my new apartment was in fact a tangerine honey variation and today—to celebrate one month in The Valley—I decided to make another.

This time I used Heritage Distilling’s Brown Sugar Bourbon. It has a hint of cinnamon, is as dangerously delicious as it sounds, and plenty fun to sip solo.

This also seemed like a good opportunity to try out my Bobos Mountain Sugar maple syrup  in a drink. I finished it off with some lemon juice and a sprig of thyme! This subtly sweet version finishes with a hint of citrus and is perfect for sipping on warm spring afternoons.

Happy Friday!
