Do you remember the Boozy Blueberry-Sage Sorbet that I made last month? Lucky me, I still have some sage simple syrup leftover (follow the link for the recipe). So I was super excited and inspired when I saw Delightfully Tacky’s post for a Rosemary Old-Fashioned.
The old-fashioned is a pretty straightforward cocktail, so I just substituted my sage simple syrup for the rosemary and switched up the garnish.
Sage Old-Fashioned Cocktail
2 t. sage simple syrup, (click link for recipe)
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 1/2 oz. bourbon
In a separate mixing glass, add the simple syrup, bitters, and bourbon. Stir gently to combine. Add ice cubes, to taste, to a rocks glass. Using a vegetable peeler, peel a wide slice of rind from an orange, being careful not to get any of the pith (white) on the rind. Twist the orange peel over the ice in the rocks glass, then place it in the glass with the ice. Pour the bourbon mixture over the ice and orange peel.
