This Twisted Whiskey Kind of Afternoon is my absolute favorite take on the classic Old-Fashioned. It utilizes fresh grapefruit instead of the classic orange, and is sweetened up by a honey simple syrup and elderflower liqueur. It's refreshing yet comforting at the same time so you can enjoy it year round!
