There’s nothing like the warmth of an Old Fashioned. This cocktail is a classic, it’s right in the name, but we’ve spruced it up a bit for the holiday season. Our Winter Old Fashioned is sure to make you smile and put you in the Christmas spirit!
Winter Old Fashioned
2 1/2 oz Rye
( we love using Hill Rock Rye, but you can choose whatever rye, bourbon or whiskey you’d like)
1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
1/2 oz Cinnamon Simple Syrup
( to make this, simply bring equal parts water and sugar to a low simmer on low heat, stir occasionally and cook for 10 minutes. Throw in fresh cinnamon stick in and let steep (the longer you steep the stronger the flavor)
2 dashes Bitter Truth Orange Bitters
Mix ingredients in a container with ice
Stir for about 30 seconds
Strain over new ice (or one large ice cube)
Garnish with an orange twist
We hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday!
