Evander Old Fashioned Cocktail

This twist on an Old Fashioned combines two of my favorite spirits: gin and rye whiskey. The Spiced Angostura Syrup is also delicious stirred or shaken into other classic cocktails such as a Collins, or of course any whisky drinks!



3/4 oz Martin Miller’s Gin

1 oz Rye Whiskey

1/4 oz Cointreau

1/4 oz Spiced Angostura Syrup (recipe follows)

Dash Peach Bitters

Spiced Angostura Syrup

1/2 cup water

3/4 cup honey

5 cloves, crushed

1 –inch piece of cinnamon stick, crushed

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

1 Tbsp. Angostura Bitters



Measure the gin, rye, Cointreau, syrup, and peach bitters into a mixing glass.

Fill glass three-quarters with ice.

Stir with a bar spoon.

Strain into an old fashioned glass filled with fresh ice.

Spritz lemon disk over drink then tuck in the drink.

Spiced Angostura Syrup

Bring water, honey, spices and bitters to a boil in a small pan.

Immediately remove from the heat and let spices infuse for 1 hour.

Strain syrup through a fine mesh strainer.

Store refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
