With the holidays comes seasonal flavors that will capture the essence of the season, and create warm holiday memories. I mean, whisky = warmth, right?! This new holiday spin on an old fashioned brings about a classic holiday flavor – whisky! I mean…err…gingerbread! Sorry, I was thinking about all those family parties and political conversations and went straight to the booze. This gingerbread cocktail is infused with cranberries and orange. You can’t go wrong serving this at your holiday functions!
