As a huge bourbon fan, I love a good old fashioned, but add a little extra flavor and a theme, and I’m obsessed. This fall twist on a smoked old fashioned was better than I imagined and felt so festive to drink. And the best part is, it was super easy! All I did was swap out the simple syrup for maple syrup and used pecan-flavored wood chips for the smoke flavor. It was delicious!
