WHAT YOU'LL NEED

This recipe makes 2 cocktails

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/3 cup honey 
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 5-7 sprigs of rosemary
  • 3-4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 orange
  • 4 oz. of Bourbon 
  • bitters (we used Bittercube Bolivar Bitters, which contain chamomile, jasmine, cassia & ceylon cinnamon, prune, raisin, clove, gentian, orange peel). Link: Bittercube Bolivar Bitters
  • ice

TOOLS

  • small sauce pan for syrup
  • paring knife
  • 2 glasses

3 EASY STEPS: SYRUP, PEEL + POUR

Step 1: Make the cinnamon rosemary simple syrup

Make a quick refined-sugar free simple syrup infused with cinnamon and rosemary: 

  • measure 1/3 c of honey into a pan
  • Measure 1/2 c of water into the same pan
  • add rosemary sprigs
  • add cinnamon sticks

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool. Remove the cinnamon sticks and rosemary sprigs. 

Step 2: Peel an orange

  • slice two thin, long strips of peel to use as a garnish
  • twist them to give them a bit of a coiled look

Step 3: Pour it and put it all together!

  • add ice to your glass
  • pour 2 oz of Bourbon into each glass
  • add 1 oz of cinnamon + rosemary simple syrup
  • add half a dropper (or 4-5 drops) of bitters
  • give the drink a stir 
  • add a fresh sprig of rosemary and your orange peel as a garnish

This recipe makes for a not too sweet Old Fashioned with some perfect-for-fall cinnamon, herb notes. If you’d prefer a more citrusy finish, swap the Bittercube Bolivar bitters for orange bitters.
