Hey friends! I hope you’re excited for today’s post because I’m partnering up with DeKuyper for my latest. For those of you looking to enjoy an easy but solid drink at home for your virtual happy hour, make sure to stick with me until the very end. Creating a picture perfect drink has never been easier, and I can’t wait to tell you how.
With DeKuyper Classic Ol’ Fashion, the drink part is taken care of. All you have to do is mix this liqueur with the bourbon of your choice and stir! It allows you to create a classic Old Fashioned cocktail in the comfort of your home with little to no effort.
In terms of aesthetics, all you need is an Old Fashioned/rocks glassware set and an ice cube tray like the one pictured below. Large cubes melt slower so it keeps your drink cold without watering it down. I know it’s counterintuitive, but small cubes actually have MORE surface area, diluting flavors quicker which is no bueno.
Happy hour wouldn’t be complete without snacks so I grabbed candy popcorn and threw that on my presentation board as well. I also wanted to prettify my drink further so I decided to use a few pieces as garnish since I didn’t have any oranges handy.
Old Fashioneds are traditionally presented with said peel because the expressed oils have a zesty smell that complements the drink, giving it additional depth.
Whether you’re looking to upgrade your virtual happy hour, play bartender with your partner or treat your dad to a dope father’s day drink, DeKuyper’s a convenient choice that’s quick and affordable!
Expect tart citrus flavors that are balanced by bitter notes and subtle sweetness with hints of orange and bakery spice. This new 30 proof liqueur is available in stores nationwide and online through Drizly and Reserve Bar with a suggested price of $12.99 per 750 ml bottle. Check out this two-step cocktail tutorial from DeKuyper bartender Amy Probasco for tips on how to create this at home like a pro.
