Winterize Your Whiskey Cocktail: Make a Chai Honey Old Fashioned

ManMade team member Gabriel  has been experimenting with some serious cocktail mixing, and sought out to give that non-season-specific classic, the Old Fashioned, a winter-y update. To pull it off, he kept the standard bourbon and Angostura bitters, but he switched up the sweetener to honey, the citrus to blood orange, and added a spice note from a Chai tea bag.  

Traditionalist might argue that once you've added a mixer, like the steeped tea, you're no longer making an Old Fashioned, but a cold toddy, or even a Texas Highball. But, Gab says when you drink it, it taste like a spiced Old Fashioned, and so I'm inclined to agree with him...and make a batch this weekend. 

Gab snapped these awesome photos and wrote up the whole thing on his personal blog, The Artful Desparado. Go check it out!
