A ’True to the Times’ classic cocktail. The classic Old Fashioned is a select option for unwinding after a long week. This sophisticate and timeless cocktail has the perfect balance of sweetness that does not take away from the enjoyment of your favorite whiskey. Today we decided to add a hint of smoke with our in house smoke box using hickory wood chips, and we are so glad we did! Try this at home and let us know what you think!
2 oz. of your favorite Bourbon or Whiskey
1 sugar cube
2 dashes of Angostura Bitters
Splash of water
Add sugar cube, bitters, and water into a mixing tin and muddle until sugar is dissolved. Add Bourbon or Whiskey (we used Maker’s Mark) and stir with a barspoon for about 15 to 20 seconds. Pour over a fresh ice sphere. Place in smoke box and add hickory chips to smoke gun (a little is a lot, trust us). If you dont have a smoke gun, the same flavor can be achieved by burning some herbs, orange peel or wood chips and placing the glass over the smoke while making the drink. Smoke for about 10 to 20 seconds, and serve with a cherry and orange peel! Enjoy!!
