Old Fashioned Cocktail

Need a last-minute gift for a host/ess with the mostest? Infused liquors are always a good choice. They’re as easy as pouring stuff into a bottle, and all you need is your alcohol of choice and a flavor you love. One of my favorite flavors is Earl Grey tea. The bergamot provides a floral and citrus boldness that (IMO) many teas lack. Earl Grey Infused Bourbon makes a terrific Old Fashioned or Manhattan. It also looks beautiful packaged in a small glass bottle with a bow. Earl Grey Infused Bourbon only takes a few days to infuse, so if you make it today, you’ll have plenty of time to gift it to those lucky loved ones.
