Half a jar of ignored marmalade sitting in the fridge... time to make a syrup...
*rich marmalade syrup*
2/3 cup Orange marmalade
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup white wine vinegar (adds brightness to the syrup and pushes fruit flavor forward, while not as acidic as your typical shrub-- really works nice for spring/summertime old fashioned)
2 sticks cinnamon
.25 oz rich marmalade syrup
2 oz. bourbon or rye to your preference
(I used bourbon here with the idea that
it would pair nicely with the orange)
2 dashes Angostura
8 drops Bittermens Xocolatl Mole bitters
Combine all in mixing glass, fill with ice and stir until well chilled. Strain into old fashioned glass hosting one large cube. Garnish optional.
