This sophisticated take on the classic Old Fashioned will impress cocktail purists, bourbon-lovers and experimental mixologists alike.
Garrison Brothers Flagship Bourbon is as smooth a whiskey as they come, with rich flavors that unfold for a buttery, caramelized-sugar finish. When met with the sweet apricot liqueur and the bitterness from the muddled lemon peel and the aromatic bitters, you get a truly complex drink.
2 oz. Garrison Brothers Flagship Bourbon
1/2 oz. Luxardo Apricot Liqueur
2 dashes of Australian Bitters Company Aromatic Bitters
Lemon peel, orange slice and a Luxardo Maraschino cherry for garnish
Place the lemon peel in an Old Fashioned glass and muddle with bitters. In a mixing glass filled with ice, add the bourbon and apricot liqueur, then strain into the glass. Garnish with cherry and orange slice, and serve over an ice sphere.
