    WHISKEY CHEERS. Have you tried It's Bourbon Night's Southern Old Fashioned. The only thing I do different (besides Whiskeys I might use depending on what I have available) is add a splash of Soda water and orange peel. This southern old fashioned is a big hit here with Friends and Family.

  2. Aidan says:

    Ooh this is a fun idea. Redemption makes a high rye bourbon and i have yet to find a better cocktail whiskey. Best of both worlds.

  3. Tim Fehn says:

    Went to a tasting where they used brandy instead of whiskey for the old fashioned and it was pretty darn good.

  4. Robert Predl says:

    You two have become my favorite bourbon couple, sorry Bourbon Night.

    Pikeville rye, thank me later. It's expensive for a mixer but it's the best imo.

    Great video, I love Old fashioned drinks and I prefer Rye.

  11. The Bourbon Van says:

    Good stuff! Loved what you said about coffee and your journey. Also, Chili’s strawberry frozen margarita is Julie’s longtime guiltiest pleasure. Terrible idea for you from Phil: marga-rye-ta. Cheers!

    Congratulations on getting over 1k subs. Definitely love the channel

  14. Rick L says:

    That was a fun video. My go to for Old Fashioned's is Four Roses Single Barrel. It has just enough rye to balance the cocktail. A close second is Old Forester Rye (great bang for your buck). Cheers!!

  15. Whiskey Wimps says:

    Got heavy into old fashioned's at the beginning of Covid. My absolute favorite old fashioned to date is simple syrup, angostura, orange peel, a little water, my special homemade Kusko ice and some Rare Breed 😎 Good times, great oldies

    Rye for Old Fashions, Sweet Bourbon for Manhattans.

    No cheap vermouth for a Manhattan either

  21. Jon Poetzl says:

    I would recommend using a higher proof base, rye or bourbon, Bulleit comes in at 90, try with a 100+ proof and see what you think
