From Red & Brown's Wedding Cocktails. We are both huge old fashioned fans, but wanted to give it some new life and a nod to our business at our wedding. In November, nothing is more comforting than some maple syrup and with the addition of some walnut bitters, we created a drink that wasn't just a crowd pleasure, it flew off the bar.
Maple Walnut Old Fashioned
Makes 1 Drink
- 2 oz rye whiskey
- 1 TBSP grade B maple syrup (we used syrup that we barrel aged for 5 months in a Tuthilltown Spirits barrel)
- 1 TBSP Red & Brown Maple Walnut Bitters
- 1 Red & Brown Old Fashioned Cocktail Cherry
In a pint glass or mixing glass add the maple syrup, whiskey, and bitters. Fill with ice and stir thoroughly for 10-15 seconds.
Strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube (or 3 regular-sized ones) and garnish with a cocktail cherry.
