Specialty Old Fashioneds
HEY FRIENDS. We wanted to give you guys all the info you need to re-create the cocktails we made this past 2nd Friday! We hope you were able to come in and have one because they were delishhhhh! If you did not, or if you just want to have another, find the recipes below.
SPECIALTY OLD FASHIONEDS || SPONSORED BY CELLAR WINE & SPIRITS
BLACKBERRY SAGE OLD FASHIONED
.75 oz blackberry sage simple syrup
1.5 oz bourbon
garnish- blackberry and/or sage
CARDAMOM OLD FASHIONED
.75 oz cardamom simple syrup
1.5 oz bourbon
garnish- we used a sprig of rosemary
In a rocks glass, add ice, the simple syrup, and bourbon. Stir with bar spoon. Top with a few splashes of bitters. Add garnish. Drink. Enjoy. Repeat.
We know this is not your typical old fashioned. The typical old fashioned takes some muddling not to mention forethought [do you have the cherries, oranges, etc.]. And although we love a fancy cocktail we also love a cocktail you can throw together with items you just have stocked in your bar. We simplified the old fashioned process by using our most favorite simple syrups from Pink House Alchemy. Pssst. we have these available for purchase in our store [they are packaged in awesome glass bottles and make a great gift paired with bar ware or bar supplies] but you can make your own simple syrups too if you would rather go that route. If you are looking for a cocktail that is seriously a no-brainer and is made in a snap - this. is. it.
We can't forget to give Cellar Wine & Spirits a HUGE major shout out...
We love [!!!] like lovelovelove [!!!!] serving everyone cocktails on 2nd Fridays. It gives us a chance to bring you a new cocktail [not to mention the new art] but we were serving 300 cocktails and running out before the night was halfway over. Which in one respect is awesome because that means you guys are coming out for 2nd Fridays but it was a bummer turning so many people away. Cellar Wine & Spirits was super excited when we asked them if they would want to team up with us to make 2nd Fridays bigger and better! Because they are so awesome we want to give you a little encouragement and say go support them!! Not only do they have an amazing, gigantic, mind-blowing selection of beer, wine, and spirits but their staff is mega-nice, and so soooo helpful. Go in and tell them what you are making and what you want to spend and they will help you pick out your spirit. They are the bomb.com and you will probably keep hearing us say that because it's true.
