About this Cocktail

This is a take on an old fashioned I had at The Old Fashioned in Madison, WI. However, its not the usual brandy concoction favored by Wisconsinites, this is a nice recipe that favors bourbon. Its a nice sipper for an evening. While its not exactly the same as what I had, here are the notes from Saveur magazine.

Adding a French Caribbean accent to the Old Fashioned's distinctive citrus notes, former Brandy Library beverage director, Ethan Kelley, introduced Créole Shrubb, an orange liqueur made from blended white and aged rums flavored with bitter orange peels. A bourbon and simple syrup infused cherry (a quick marination can be made at home with one part water to two parts bourbon, with sweetener. Cut the cherries in halves to speed the process.) is first muddled with Angostura bitters and a slice of orange. This recipe was shared with us by Flavien Desoblin, proprietor of Manhattan's Brandy Library.

  • 3 oz bourbon (I like Wild Turkey 101)
  • 1 oz Clement Creole Shrubb
  • 2 dashes Angostora Bitters
  • Ribboned orange wheel, for garnish
  • 1 Luxardo Cherry

Place the orange wheel at the bottom of the glass, with its twisted ribbon hanging out. Squeeze a cherry by hand and throw in. Put the bitters and muddle twice. Add bourbon and Creole Shrubb. Add one ice sphere and stir.
