This Fall Spice Old Fashioned with Burnt Cinnamon is perfect for your holiday get together!
The holidays are here and I for one could use a good cocktail. Every season I love to make a good, strong, festive drink. Like this Hot Mulled Apple Cider and these Holly Jolly Coffee and Beer Pick-me-ups! These Fall Spice Old Fashioneds are a play on BMW’s and my favorite cocktail that I gave a little upgrade for the holidays!
