My Grandma would have an Old Fashioned whenever she and Grampa went out to dinner. she said 2 made her head spin, LOL. I'm so glad they're hip again, because I LOVE them! Lightly sweet and boozy with a hint of bitters. I may have two and make my head spin!! The Maraschino liqueur isn't a requirement, but it more than makes up for the lack of the cherry without adding any carbs!
