Want to make an old fashioned like a pro? Then watch this video, the first in Old Forester’s Cocktail Chronicles series. Dallas bartender Geovanni Alafita does it with a twist: chocolate and chile.
This is how you can re-create his recipe:
Spiced Chocolate Old Fashioned
Yields 1 drink
2 ounces Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky
2-3 dashes of chocolate bitters
1-2 dashes of Angostura bitters
1 teaspoon ancho liqueur
Dash of vanilla simple syrup
Toast a cinnamon stick with flame and place under a glass. This glass will be used to serve the drink once it is mixed.
Pour syrup, liqueur, bitters, and whisky in a separate glass; add ice and stir.
Strain and pour over ice into the glass that once covered the cinnamon stick. Garnish with toasted cinnamon stick and ancho chile pepper.
Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky, 43-50% Alc. by Volume, Brown-Forman Distillers Company, Louisville, KY.
