Cubed Old Fashion

The Cubed Old Fashion

Recipe by Jamie Boudreau

http://spiritsandcocktails.wordpress.com/2010/10/23/old-fashioned-cubed-and-syruped/

I used

  • 3/4 oz Hennessy VSOP
  • 3/4 oz Appleton Estate V/X
  • 3/4 oz Bulleit Bourbon
  • 1/3 oz Rich Simple Syrup (2:1 Ratio) (Sweeten to taste)
  • 1 Dash of Angostura Bitters
  • 1 Dash of Fee Brothers Orange Bitters
  • 1 Dash of Fee Brothers Chocolate Bitters

Stirred with ice, strained into an old fashion rocks glass with a giant cube. Garnished with Orange/Cherry flag. The cherry I used was a Griottine cherry. 

This drink is amazing. I personally love the old fashion cocktail. This one brings it to a different level. The taste is smooth and complex. I find the original old fashion to be a tad bit raw because of the bourbon content, which is great. But in the Cubed old fashion, the drink is smoothed out by the Cognac and Rum. The bitters also add a nice touch to the drink. Feel free to experiment by using more Chocolate bitters or even other flavors!

Note: The ingredients I used varied slightly from the original. The ingredients I used are easier to find. Also, the original calls for a homemade Old Fashion syrup which would definitely put a better taste to the drink.

Cheers!
