Burnt Orange Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe

burntorangeoldfashioned BurntOrangeOldFashioned2BurntOrangeOldFashioned3BurntOrangeOldFashioned4The Old Fashioned can be a little intimidating because of its age, staggering taste of bourbon whiskey and just the simple fact that it’s known to be the original cocktail. In other terms, it’s the old fashioned way of mixing a cocktail. The Old Fashioned is typically made with bourbon whiskey, bitters, sugar, and either orange or lemon rind. The cocktail has an acquired taste, but if made right, it can warm the soul. There are several versions, so I’ve decided to give it my own twist, something that I would want to sit down with after a long day of work (ahem, bringing out the old mustache, tall hat man in me, where’s my cigar?). So I created the Burnt Orange Old Fashioned, but stayed true to the basic and classic ingredients of the original cocktail. I garnished it with a burnt orange peel too, giving it a rustic, lumberjack look ; )

Burnt Orange Old Fashioned Recipe
2 ounces of a premium bourbon whiskey
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
Orange rinds

Directions

In a small sauce pan, brown the sugar and orange juice. Don’t cook it too long or it will become very thick.

Rub an orange peel around the edge of the glass you’ll be serving the drink it, so it gives a beautiful orange aroma.

Add one slice orange rind, 1 teaspoon burnt orange sugar and muddle the orange rind and sugar together.

Add 2 dashes bitters and stir, then add in 2 ounces bourbon whiskey, stir again.

You can add a splash of club soda if you like it served that way, or just leave it a true Old Fashioned.

Place a few orange rinds on a cooking sheet and broil on low until the edges become a slightly burnt.

Add a giant ice cube to the cocktail and garnish with a burnt orange. Go back into time and enjoy!
