It doesn’t get more classic than the three ingredient whiskey drink, the Old Fashioned.

But traditional recipes are meant to be twisted, which is exactly why we’re spiking the cocktail with Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur this season.

Hailing from Sydney, Mr Black are high-quality roasters and distillers on a mission to bring craft coffee into the night. This isn’t your syrupy, sweet coffee liqueur of yore. Mr Black Cold Brew Liqueur is a bold, bittersweet blend of top-grade Arabica coffee and Australian wheat vodka that has just enough sweetness to sip on the rocks. In the past few years, it has become the cocktail coffee of choice for the world’s best bars, restaurants and shops.

The Cold Fashioned is the drink trend we’ve been waiting for, especially as the crisp air of fall and winter approaches. While everyone seems to be introducing a boozy cold brew drink onto the market, Mr Black has been ahead of the curve for years, and their Cold Fashioned recipe is going to be the it  drink of the season. While you can find the cocktail on bar menus across the United States, the recipe is easy to make at home. Simply combine equal parts rye whiskey and Mr Black with a dash of orange bitters, and you’ll have a flavor-packed coffee cocktail that will impress even the most discerning palates.
