How To Make A Spiced Christmas Old Fashioned

This holiday old fashioned cocktail recipe has citrusy notes of orange with a clove cinnamon spiced simple syrup & good bourbon whiskey. 

Start with fresh slices of orange. They need to be lightly muddled to release essential oils from the zest and juice from the citrus.

Muddle the orange in the glass to release the oils. Don't overdo it.

Measure out the bourbon and add it to the old fashioned glass with muddled orange. 

This holiday spiced simple syrup gives the Christmas Old Fashioned a fabulous aroma and flavor. 

Garnish your holiday cocktail with an orange curl, amarena cherry or even fresh or sugared cranberries. 

This cocktail recipe is festive & perfect for the Christmas holidays.
