Recipe: Westward Whiskey Cold Fashioned

Cold Fashioned

During these unprecedented times, when staying at home is of the utmost importance, us here at The AU Review are going to be doing everything we can to help readers live their best lives, indoors.

As with many other media companies who typically focus on getting folks out and about, we’re shifting to adapt to the necessary lock-downs taking place all over the world. One way we’ll be doing so is simply by sharing our favourite recipes.

Over the next few weeks (or months, who knows) we’ll be publishing the cocktail and food recipes that we find most exciting, so that when you aren’t ordering in to support your favourite venues, you’ll know enough to quickly throw together some top-class concoctions.

Westward Whiskey Cold Fashioned

Notes: If you love indulging in Espresso Martini’s or Old Fashioned’s but might not have all the necessary equipment and ingredients on hand at home, the Cold Fashioned is the perfect fit. Simple and easy to make with only 4 ingredients and a few quick steps. There’s enough room for your own interpretations too, so go nuts and find what works best for you.
