Old Forester 86 proofIntroducing new twists on the Old Fashioned in this collection of “New Fashioned Cocktails”.

BourbonBlog.com presents these recipes below for the first time in one place for you to taste.

The original Old Fashioned was invented in Louisville over a century ago at the Pendennis Club.

While there is no mention of which Bourbon was used that first time, we’d like to think it might have been Old Forester Bourbon, being another Louisville favorite.

And this month, as we toast to the birthday of Old Forester Founder George Garvin Brown, it only seems right to use his famous Bourbon in these.
