The Knob Creek Torched Citrus Old Fashioned, created by Austin's Jeff Hammett uses Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve Bourbon, torched citrus rinds and a touch of clove to create a tart and spicy twist on the Old Fashioned. Combining the traditional flavors of simple syrup, bitters and bourbon, the cocktail is topped with soda water, making it pop with each sip you take.
If you're still craving some of the flavors of summer as you transition into fall, look no further than the Knob Creek Liberty Old Fashioned, created by Philadelphia's Maria Polise. This unique twist on the Old Fashioned combines the tart flavors of Carpano Antica and bitters, mixed with refreshing mint and sweet strawberries, creating the perfect sweet and tart combination.
Finally, the Sarsaparilla Old Fashioned, created by Dallas' own Eddie Eakin mixes the spicy flavors of Knob Creek Rye with Sarsaparilla, a traditional flavor originally used in Texas and the American West during the 1950s, to create a truly one-of-a-kind Old Fashioned. Vanilla and honey add the sweetness to the cocktail that is truly in a league of its own.
