Looking for a sophisticated yet simple cocktail to wow your guests or to serve that special someone? Then this Black Walnut Old Fashioned is for you!
| Ted’s Takeover Recipe: Black Walnut Old Fashioned | Hi guys! Here’s a little something to warm you up–and this also serves as a great companion for game night, particularly if your team is losing.😂 During the warmer months I like drinking tequila and sometimes a little gin but for the fall and winter months nothing else except bourbon makes sense to me. If you’ve been working outside or walking around in the cold wind and snow, a strong bourbon cocktail really takes the frost off.
This is a hearty mixed drink with the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness. The Montenegro Amaro’s combination of spices and botanicals add a deep complexity of flavor that some sensitive palettes might find strange at first, but becomes increasingly satisfying a couple sips in.
I skewered a small piece of blood orange and cherry together for garnish here, but a simple curled orange peel on the rim of the glass works well in it’s place. Cheers and enjoy! **This cocktail pairs beautifully with my baked chicken wings recipe!
- Pre-chill a coupe cocktail glass in the freezer or fridge. Fill cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes, add all ingredients, cover and shake vigorously for thirty seconds.
- Fill coupe glass almost to the rim with cocktail mixture. Garnish with cherry and blood orange wedge. Enjoy!
