As the nights draw in, cozy up at Prohibition to celebrate one of the world's most famous whiskey cocktails, the Old Fashioned, every Wednesday between now and November 23. Each week, both traditional and creative interpretations of the classic cocktail will be on special for $10 CDN, alongside live bluegrass music and all-American food features such as wings and truffle fries.
"We're excited to introduce Vancouverites to a wide variety of innovative Old Fashioned cocktails, while still staying true to - and celebrating - the timeless original," said Prohibition's Head Bartender Robyn Gray.
Two feature Old Fashioned cocktails will be on special every week, showcasing bourbons from Collingwood, Woodford, Jack Daniels, Gentleman Jack and Jack Daniels 150th anniversary edition. Special cocktails include the World's Best Bourbon Old Fashioned with Woodford Bourbon, gomme, Angostura Bitters, lemon and orange swath and Hoshizake ice cubes; and the Inception Old Fashioned, inspired by Prohibition's signature Inception Negroni.
Head Bartenders Robyn Gray and Brad Stanton have also created an exclusive Old Fashioned that showcases the rare Jack Daniels 150th anniversary edition bottle of Tennessee whiskey, which was recently released to celebrate the birthday of the famous spirit. The commemorative Jack Daniels 150th Anniversary Old Fashioned includes a mixture of Canadian maple syrup, the limited edition whiskey, and bitters, that is smoked using wood chips from Jack Daniels barrel staves. The tipple is served tableside in a spectacular fashion, as the concoction is poured out of a smoke-filled decanter into the cocktail glass.
Old Fashioned Wednesdays will be running every Wednesday (8:30pm until 12:30am) from now until November 23, with live bluegrass music every week, including appearances by Viper Central on September 14 and the Bayou Ramblers on September 21 and 28. For more information visit prohibitionrhg.com
