Make your next Old Fashioned with Honey!
Having recently been having a love affair with making honey simple syrups, I thought I'd give a go at using my honey simple syrup in the most classic of all cocktails, The Old Fashioned.
Glad I did, give it a try because I think you'll like it as much as I did.
2 Ounces Rye Whiskey* (or Bourbon)
2 Tsp. Honey**
1 Tsp. Warm Water
2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
Garnish: 1 Orange slice, 1 Homemade Bourbon Cherry
Add the honey, warm water and bitters to an old fashioned glass then stir until the honey has dissolved. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add your chosen whiskey. Give this a quick stir then twist the orange slice over the cocktail to express the oils and juice then drop it into the drink. Garnish with the cocktail cherry and serve.
*I used Bulleit “95” Rye Small Batch Frontier Whiskey.
** I prefer to use locally sourced honey when making a plain honey simple syrup.
