Five O'Clock Somewhere
It’s Friday…let’s kick off the weekend early. Here’s what we’ll be drinking tonight:
It’s still Fall for a few more weeks, so we’re sticking with a Fall-themed drink: a Maple Old Fashioned. It’s an update on the classic drink. But don’t worry, it’s only a small update so you can still look as cool as Don Draper. (No, no you can’t. No one can.)
Word of advice: the recipe recommends using 2 teaspoons of maple syrup. Use less. That’s a little too sweet for our taste.
