Coffee Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe — In case you’re looking to spice up your traditional old fashioned recipe, this version is both your favorite coffee and favorite cocktail combined…
Some days you need a coffee and some days, you just need a cocktail. And some days, you need both! Fathers and father figures are always there for us.
They build playhouses, patch scraped knees, pick us up when we fall and dish out all the dad jokes. I, Ashley have secretly grown to love them. Ha!
To thank your pops or your partner for their spirit and love over the years, make them something special for Father’s Day. Leave the macaroni art to the kids, and mix up this Coffee Old Fashioned!
Old Fashioned are a classic for a reason. Touted as one of the first cocktails, it contains spirit, sugar and bitters. It can also be any combination of these three ingredients.
The base spirit can be the go-to bourbon, rum, mezcal or other spirits combined with flavored syrups and a plethora of bitter choices, you can really make it your own.
I kept it classic with bourbon here, but added in some coffee liqueur for a kick of caffeine.
Along with orange and spice-filled angostura bitters, this Coffee Old Fashioned is the perfect pick-me up to mix-up for Father’s Day this year!
