It’s that time of year when I want hot cocktails and beverages. With the weather cooling down and the days getting darker, sometimes a nice warm cocktail after work is just what I need. I wasn’t always a fan of hot cocktails (except the occasional spiked hot chocolate), but they’ve grown on me in my later 20s. One drink in particular that I’ve learned to love is Mulled Wine. It’s like a warm, fruity, lightly spiced hug in a mug.
If you don’t know by now, the Old Fashioned is my favorite cocktail. It’s a classic, and I can get one almost anywhere I go. It’s also a cocktail that lends itself to flavor variations pretty well. Since it’s fall, I wanted to bring some seasonal flavors to my favorite cocktail. Enter, the Cranberry Old Fashioned.

I’ve been experimenting with sours lately, specifically whiskey sours, and mixing in some of my remaining herbs. One of my favorite results is today’s cocktail: the Sage Bourbon Sour, made with Old Dominick Huling Station Bourbon.
It’s National Tequila Day! Who would have thought I, typically a non-tequila drinker, be toasting this “holiday”? But it’s also peach season, and as y’all know, I’m obsessed with peaches. So I popped a bottle of tequila and got creative, and this was the result: Frozen Peach Margaritas!

Gin can vary widely in flavor profiles, ranging from dry and citrusy to heavy floral notes. The newest gin in my collection comes from Old Dominick Distillery in Memphis, which I featured on the blog earlier this year.
This weekend is National Bourbon Day, so I wanted to make sure y’all are properly equipped to partake. I first made peach infused bourbon last year and was super happy with how it turned out. When peaches started showing up at the grocery store and farmer’s market again, I immediately knew the first thing I wanted to make again.
Did y’all know that this Saturday is National Mint Julep Day? I don’t need much of a reason to make one, but that seems like a fine occasion to me. That, and the fact that we didn’t really get a Derby weekend this spring. So, let’s get to it and make a classic mint julep today.

It’s a variation of my favorite cocktail, with a new liquor to which I was recently introduced: the Memphis Toddy from Old Dominick Distillery in—you guessed it—Memphis, Tennessee. The unique flavor profile brings a whole new dimension to my favorite classic cocktail.
