It’s been rumored that rapper Drake is a big fan of an Old Fashioned, so in honor of his Album of the Year-nominated record Views, the Grammy’s official after-party caterers crafted this cocktail. This cocktail uses traditional Old Fashioned ingredients but adds a splash of apple spiced syrup to bring the kind of warmth that only a Drake record can.This recipe is courtesy of Patina Restaurant Group.
