I’ve been sitting on this recipe idea for quite a few months now and finally chose to whip it up earlier today. And now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long because it’s super easy to make and hella tasty. Also, if you’ve found yourself slightly intimated by the Old Fashioned then this is a nice way to ease yourself in. The addition of Piehole Pecan Pie Whiskey gives it a nice layer of dessert-y sweetness while the Bulleit Bourbon still makes for a pretty solid Old Fashioned.
Another cool thing about this cocktail is that you can really add your own twist to it by using flavored bitters. I used good ol’ fashioned Angostura bitters for my cocktail, but a vanilla or walnut-flavored bitter would really take this drink to the next level.
Check out my Pecan Pie Old Fashioned recipe, below. Cheers!

Add sugar cube(s), bitters, and a splash of water to an Old Fashioned glass. Muddle sugar mixture with the back of a spoon. Add Bulleit Bourbon and Piehole Whiskey to your glass. Stir and add ice. Garnish with cherry.

Create a holiday-inspired cocktail using unconventional ingredients like cream cheese and cranberry sauce? No problem. That’s exactly what I was challenged to do as part of Piehole Whiskeys influencer competition. Last week, I received a package with all three of the Piehole Whiskey’s (Apple Pie, Cherry Pie, and Pecan Pie) and a handful of ingredients including walnuts, apple cider, whipped cream, canned pumpkin, and cream cheese. I was then tasked with creating a cocktail using at least two of those ingredients.
As much as I wanted to, I wasn’t brave enough to choose the cream cheese, but I did use the cranberry sauce and apple cider. The end result was my Cran-Apple Sangria, a holiday twist on a boozy classic. Oh! And did I mention that the winner of the challenge will win a cooking class for two? Much needed on my end, so wish me luck!
Check out the Cran-Apple Sangria recipe below, cheers!
