Humbling Old-Fashioned: Whisk(e)y Wednesday presented by Lock & Key

by Sydney "Brown Nose" Blanchard

I'm a sucker for a pretty cocktail, especially one with fancy garnishes. It just makes me feel very adult and very sophisticated. I've only been legally allowed to drink for two years, so ordering alcoholic beverages is still a novelty to me.

Humbling Old-Fashioned at Lock & Key
I'm new to the whiskey cocktail game, and I'm easily impressed, I'll admit it. It doesn't take much to get me excited.

Recently at Lock & Key I ordered the Humbling Old-Fashioned and boy was I ever excited.

This three-ingredient whiskey cocktail tastes more complex than it actually is (it's got three main ingredients).

Buffalo Trace bourbon, Hum Hibiscus liqueur, and agave nectar combine to make this sweet, murky cocktail.

But don't think fruity, think floral.

The hibiscus liqueur tastes like springtime, and it really comes through in this twist on the old fashioned.

I'd put it on shaved ice and call it a snow ball any day.

I'm really excited to try all of Lock & Key's variations on the old fashioned.
