This recipe from Blue Note Bourbon gives the typical old fashioned a smoky, fruity kick with the addition of muddled fig. This brings about flavors similar to the traditional winter figgy pudding, but with booze. For the orange and cherry bitters, TLP recommends using Woodford Reserve bitters.
1/2 ounce simple syrup
Dash orange and cherry bitters
2 ounces Blue Note Crossroads
or any bourbon
Charred orange slice
- In a chilled rocks glass, muddle fig with simple syrup and bitters. Top with ice and bourbon, and stir. Serve with a charred orange slice.
