Here’s a little holiday recipe to test out on your new bar cart from expert Nate Camelio of Garnish Bartending, a mobile boutique bartending business.
“I wanted to highlight Colorado spirits, especially Spirit Hounds because they are like family to me,” says Camelio. “I also chose this drink because bourbon is my liquor of choice and I love creating seasonal old fashions. Depending on the season and what is in season, I create my old fashioned around what’s fresh and use local products as much as I can.”
