Saturday night we went out to dinner and sat at the bar. We’re people watchers, and while relaxing at the bar we lost count of all the Old Fashions our bartender made. At $13 a pop you can imagine the money the restaurant made that night. You’re certainly welcome to spend that much cash but, if you’d like to stay home and save a few pennies, here’s one you’ll enjoy.
Handy and Schiller Old Fashioned owned by Sazerac is made using Buffalo Trace and Peychaud’s Bitters. It’s 42% ABV and a 750ml bottle costs $39. I poured myself a glass and it didn’t even make a dent in the bottle. I could easily make this bottle last for another 8 or so pours. That averages to about $5 a cocktail.
I mean the price is right but… is it good? Oh, it’s good! It has the perfect amount of sweetness, you get loads of vanilla, fruit, honey, spices, and bitters. I’ve reviewed many ready-made cocktails and this one has jumped the line to one of my favorites.
You are getting a quality product at an affordable price. It’s a no brainer!
