lavender old fashioned for how you glow

A while back, I had the pleasure of creating an old fashioned for my darling friends Jessie and Tara at How You Glow. The girls came over and we spent a few hours playing around with various ingredients and the delicious result was this lavender old fashioned.

The perfect drink for any How You Glow or By Kara Elise girl, the lavender bitters and garnish really elevate this classic whiskey drink and sets it apart.

So next time you’re craving a fresh whiskey drink or if you’re looking to try one for the first time, this subtly flowery and fresh old fashioned will hit the spot. Happy Whiskey Wednesday friends!
