RECIPE: Apple Pie Ol’ Fashioned From Hard Rock Hotel’s Velvet Bar

There isn’t really a season of the year that I’m not in the mood for apple pie and an old fashioned, but the craving for both is certainly heightened during the winter months. 

There’s just something so cozy and homey about both delicious treats that the idea of combining them? My holidays are forever changed and for the better. 

The folks over at Velvet Bar in Universal’s Hard Rock Hotel have been kind enough to share their recipe to bring this piece of cheer home for the holidays. So light that bonfire, pour a glass, and prepare for that happy, warm-tummied feeling of a good drink shared with good people.
