Daytime Old-Fashioned

The Fever-Tree Porch | New York

As seasonless as the Old-Fashioned might be, it still inspires seasonal tinkering. “The idea behind the Daytime Old-Fashioned was to have a sessionable take on [the] classic,” says Victoria. While her update on the OG OF features the familiar bourbon base, it crosses over into long-drink mule territory with a healthy pour of spicy, aromatic ginger ale—which stands in for the usual bitters while bringing on the required sweetness. “It may be lighter than a classic version, but it really packs flavor … and is easy to drink from day to night,” she says.
