A Modern Old-Fashioned Cocktail Takes You Back to the Sixties

Fall TV show buzz is in the air! The Betty Crocker kitchen experts were inspired by TV shows set in the '60's to create a modern take on an old-fashioned cocktail.

This cocktail infuses the flavors of peach, citrus and maple syrup into the classic bourbon drink. Finish it off with a single, large ice cube to give it a modern twist that's perfect for a dimly-lit bar or kicking back on your own sofa.

What does muddle mean? When mixing cocktails, herbs and/or fruit are often mashed or ground--muddled--in the bottom of a glass or cocktail shaker before adding the liquid ingredients to intensify their flavors. You can muddle with a spoon or a pestle-like tool called a muddler.
