Books and Chocolate: A classic romantic bourbon night

As part of my date night at home, I wanted to share my romantic bourbon date night cocktail that's perfect for chilling at the house and cuddled on the couch. It's a favorite of mine when I want something sweet and also pairs well with cookies and movie night snacks. This elevated take on an old fashioned adds sweetness and is perfect for a little nighttime relaxation.
