About this Cocktail

I know, I know, another Old Fashioned variation - but I'm really pleased with this one. I've probably spent more time tweaking this simple little drink than I have anything else I've made. For example, I can tell you that it doesn't work well with Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy, nor the Angostura Rum 7 year, and it really needs the cinnamon simple syrup as opposed to demerara simple, and on and on. I haven't tested with any other chocolate bitters but I'd guess that they'd work just fine, but who knows?

  • 1 oz Laird's Applejack
  • 1 oz Angostura Rum 5 year
  • 0.25 oz cinnamon simple syrup
  • 3 drops Fee Brothers Chocolate Bitters
  • 3 drops Herbsaint
  • orange swath

Build, stir with ice until good and cold, strain, garnish with orange swath.
