Need a special cocktail recipe for an upcoming holiday celebration? Then watch the eighth episode of Old Forester's Cocktail Chronicles. Austin bartender Jayson Black makes his Midnight Rambler old fashioned, which is rich with maple notes, he says.
Another cool trick: He rinses the glass with pastis, an anise-flavored aperitif, before pouring in the finished drink.
