Blueberry Old Fashioned

Post by Amanda

Blueberry Old Fashioned

 

Remember that blueberry syrup we made earlier in the week? We used it to give a summertime twist to one of our favorite classic cocktails- the Old Fashioned.

Ingredients:

2oz Bourbon (we love Four Roses Small Batch)

2oz Blueberry syrup (recipe here)

1 Orange slice

1 Maraschino cherry

2 Dashes agave

2 Dashes orange bitters

Directions: Add orange slice, maraschino cherry, and agave to the bottom of a 9oz rocks glass and muddle. Fill rocks glass with ice and add bourbon, syrup, and bitters. Invert a shaker tin over your rocks glass to form a tight seal and give it a hard shake for 15-30 seconds. Pour contents back into rocks glass and add a few more ice cubes if needed. Garnish with an orange peel and an additional maraschino cherry.
