Honey & Elderflower Old Fashioned

Tis the season for breaking out the bourbon! As soon as there's a chill in the air, I am beyond ready to switch to something a little moodier.

This Honey & Elderflower Old Fashioned is the perfect transition from the bright drinks of summer, to the heavier ones we crave during colder months. If you're not quite ready to give up the spritzer for the toddy, this might be the perfect drink for you.

St-Germaine is my longstanding favorite, alongside a good Old Fashioned. Pairing the two, as well as the addition of honey, gives the Old Fashioned the perfect hint of sweetness, allowing for a slow transition into the next season of cocktails.
