Ready for this weekend’s cocktail? Erin’s got a great twist on the an old favorite, a Rosemary Old Fashioned.
ROSEMARY OLD FASHIONED
Old Fashioned are always great for sipping on in the colder months.
This variation, the Rosemary Old Fashioned, uses rosemary to provide a nice herbaceous note and orange bitters to round out the drink.
Rosemary Old Fashioned
- 2 oz Rye Whiskey
- .25 oz Rosemary Syrup (see recipe below)
- 2 Dash Orange Bitters (I like to use Regan’s)
- To make the rosemary syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar in a pot. Add several sprigs of fresh rosemary. Heat mixture until just barely simmering and remove from heat. Let the syrup steep for 10 minutes, and then remove the rosemary.
- In a rocks glass combine the whiskey, rosemary syrup, and orange bitters. Add ice and stil to chill the drink. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and an orange peel.
