Old-Fashioned Bourbon

When you get right down to it, the Bourbon Old Fashioned is little more than a slug of whiskey, seasoned and sweetened. Yet for all of its suave simplicity, the drink remains as relevant today as it was when it first captured drinkers’ hearts 200 years ago.


2 1/4 oz bourbon⠀

1/4 oz TVH+ Batch 1 syrup*⠀

1 dash orange bitters⠀

1 dash ango bitters⠀

garnish: lemon peel⠀

*This is a syrup made by Chicago's famous speakeasy, the Violet Hour, containing (as best I know/recall) scorched demerara, vanilla, orange, wormwood, and licorice root. Unbelievably delicious.⠀


Stir well with ice and double strain over ice chunk. Twist lemon peel over.⠀
