History

After Midnight is a cocktail dreamed up by Cassandra Randazzo from Urbn in North Park, San Diego. 

Cassandra's Inspiration:
"I wanted to combine one of my favorite whiskies with some rich fall flavors. We’ve had a cold winter this year, and I wanted people to think of warm fireplaces and leather wingback chairs while they sipped this cocktail. With that in mind, I varied a classic old fashioned, using an apple cordial for sweetness with walnut bitters for depth. The flavors compliment the spicy notes of the whiskey. Reminds me of a warm dessert."
