Holiday Old Fashioned


Right before you begin your Christmas merriment I wanted to share a fabulous Holiday cocktail which was actually given to me by the blogger “The Kentucky Gent” a male lifestyle blogger! I know I typically am all about sharing things that are pretty, pink, and girly on my site, but today I thought this could be a rare and unique opportunity to get a male’s point of view for a festive holiday drink. So ladies, get out the Bourbon because there’s nothing better than impressing our male guests, boyfriends, husbands, and even father-in-laws than serving up a well made cocktail!!
