One good thing about the end of summer is that it heralds the beginning of the Fall TV shows, including one of our faves,  Boardwalk Empire, whose final season premieres on September 7th.

What better way to celebrate premiere night than with a bourbon cocktail inspired by the show itself? The Corrupt Old Fashioned  is inspired by the characters you know and love – just make sure to use a quality liquor , like Basil Hayden’s bourbon.

Here’s to the end of Prohibition!
