Hack An Old Fashioned

Hack An Old Fashioned

I had my friend Dave Groom over to the house for a little conversation about his brand new daughter (congrats Dave!). Before we got started, we got “started”… And in this case the kick-start called for a couple of old fashions.

Sometimes daddy needs some downtime, a break from the bustle of play time and saving breakables. An old fashioned provides one with that particularly stylish and respectable brand of respite where one is most appropriately referred to simply as “Papa.”

Go on, Papa, get yours. :) Oh, and look for more from this interview session with Dave coming up soon on FatherApprentice.com.

Do you have experience with the venerable Ye Auld Fashionned? Are we doing anything wrong here? Well, you can’t fault us for having a great time, but we would love to hear about any cocktail hacks, tips, and tricks you’ve got. Cheers!

HA HA!! Part of me takes that as a compliment! The other part of me is looking up nearby therapists….

I want to go to there. I want to hold the old fashioned. Then drink it. So tasty.

Jason, if you’re kind and nice, and always say “thank you” and always put the seat down and wash your soul out with soap, then, yes, you can have one.

Thank you for this, gentlemen. I will be putting this newfound expertise to use tonight as I attempt to become an Old Fashioned badass in the eyes of my buddies…
