Top Dallas bartender Fernanda Rossano isn't afraid to get spicy when mixing drinks, as she demonstrates in this episode of Old Forester's Cocktail Chronicles. Rossano adds a kick to the classic old fashioned with citrus and not one but two chile-based ingredients.
Watch how she does it before tackling the recipe below, and be sure to keep plenty of ice on hand.
