Knock It Stiff – The 19th Hole – The Poor Man’s Old Fashioned using good whiskey


If you are 21 please continue reading – if not check back for our next post.  If you are 21, as always please drink responsibly and don’t ruin a great round by driving drunk.  Take a cab or ask a sober buddy for a ride.

Sorry for the week break but we took the weekend off to celebrate Christmas with our families.

Making a good cocktail doesn’t always mean you need to own all the high-end ingredients.  While a good drink at a bar is never a bad thing, at home I don’t have a fully stocked bar…one thing I can always promise is I will have good bourbon/whiskey on hand.  We decided to make the “poor man’s” old fashioned this week.  I wanted to feature an old fashioned that is quick to make and tastes amazing.  Now that the temps are dipping below 0 degree here in Columbus there is something fitting about an old fashioned by a fire or space heater.  Only ingredient you may need to buy is bitters for this drink. 


Step one, add a pinch or two of sugar…

Step two, add a couple dashes of Angostura bitters…

**Please note, you can add a cherry here but because of my bourbon choice I decided not to.

Step three, add an oz or two of water…

Step four, add a couple oz of whiskey.  I decided to break out the TX Whiskey.  The vanilla taste adds a sweet flavor profile to the drink.      

Step five, add ice and stir…

Finish with an orange garnish…
