If autumn is in the air, then an Old Fashioned cocktail should be in your hand. The classic drink made with whiskey, Angostura bitters, and sugar cubes is an ideal tipple when the temperatures start to drop. Ideally, it should be made with Elijah Craig Small Batch: an award-winning Kentucky bourbon. It has warm spice notes and a subtle smokiness from aging in charred oak barrels that takes the chill off of those crisp evenings and makes any Old Fashioned sing. The brand even created Old Fashioned Week (from October 14 to October 23), to show love for the classic cocktail and benefit the Southern Smoke Foundation, a crisis relief organization that provides a safety net for food and beverage industry workers nationwide.
