Fall is descending on Detroit with crisp cool air off the river, new seasonal produce hitting the stands at Eastern Market, and cocktail menus highlighting drinks with darker liquors, cozy vibes, and smoke reminiscent of crackling bonfires. There’s no better time to drink an Old Fashioned: a simple yet brilliant blend of bourbon, bitters, water, and sugar, garnished with an orange twist.
Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon takes Old Fashioneds and its endless variations to the next level, thanks to the charred oak barrels it’s aged in. It’s pleasantly woody and spicy, with a hint of nutmeg and a long, sweet, and slightly toasted finish. The brand even created Old Fashioned Week (from October 14-October 23), not only to celebrate the classic cocktail but to benefit the Southern Smoke Foundation: a crisis relief organization that provides a safety net for food and beverage industry workers nationwide.
Here’s where to sip some of the best Old Fashioneds in Metro-Detroit, made all the better with Elijah Craig Small Batch. You can also find even more participating bars and restaurants at oldfashionedweek.com.Read More
