The Old-Fashioned is one of the most popular cocktails of all time. It is so easy, just one spirit dominates the cocktail. Adding Jägermeister to the whiskey adds a depth of flavor that you wouldn’t imagine. This recipe adds maple syrup instead of sugar and chocolate bitters and they work so well together with the Jägermeister and whiskey blend.
