Starting off 2022 with a flame… this smoked old fashioned is a great starting point for fire based cocktails at home. Made with our sweet potato syrup and vanilla bitters, plus rye whiskey from my family’s distillery in Georgia. Tag us in your re-creations on instagram @elguapobitters!
Smoked Rye Old Fashioned
Makes one cocktail
• 2 oz @13thcolony Rye Whiskey
• .25 oz El Guapo® Sweet Potato Syrup
• 2 dashes El Guapo® Vanilla Bitters
• One large rock 🧊
• Orange peels, for garnishes 🍊
• Wooden plank & blowtorch 🔥
Torch one orange peel by hand or on a wooden board & place glass head down over smoking peel once lit to allow smoke to percolate inside the glass while you make the cocktail.
In a mixing glass filled with ice, combine rye, syrup & bitters. Stir until well chilled. Turn glass right side up & place one large rock in the glass. Strain cocktail over rock rock & garnish with an orange peel. Serve immediately. Cheers! 🥃
