An Old Fashioned, one of the cocktail world’s most recognizable drinks, is typically made with sugar, bitters, whiskey, and an orange for garnish. We’re adding a touch of rich fruit to the mix by using Amarena cherry syrup to give it a kick of sweetness and create a touch of fruit to this already intense cocktail. For cheese pairings, we recommend ones that can stand up to the boldness of the drink, like a fruity, smoky blue such as Caveman Blue, or a firm cheese with notes of chocolate and nuts, like our Cavemaster Annelies.
