Bartenders Tell Us What to Do With a Bottle of Bourbon (Past Drinking It Straight)

February 6, 2018

There are far more options than a standard Old Fashioned.

 

It’s hard to mess up bourbon: America’s favorite whiskey is great straight, on the rocks, or in a highball. (Just make sure you give it proper respect in a nice glass.) But what if you want to go beyond your weeknight standard of booze-in-a-glass-with-ice?

To answer that very pressing question, we asked bartenders across the country what they would do with a bottle of bourbon—you know, if they couldn’t just drink it straight. And, unsurprisingly, many of them agave the same answer: “Make old fashioneds.” (A full 7 different bartenders, in fact.) So definitely start there. But when you’re ready for more, read on....

 

Get Batched
You’ve got the whole bottle, so why not use it to make a whole bottle’s worth of old fashioneds? That’s what Benjamin Wood of Beatnik in Chicago does. Just a “little simple math” stands between you and a pitcher full of old fashioneds. So get multiplying.
