A Drink Recipe With Old Fashioned Inspiration
Being creative doesn’t mean you have to reinvent the wheel. In fact, some of the best developments in creativity are ones that built upon earlier ideas. You see this creative theme running through the art, literary, fashion, and culinary worlds – not to mention the world of science.
Today, we’re going back to one of the earliest cocktails ever created, a cocktail that eschewed the very idea of “cocktails”: the Old Fashioned. The Old Fashioned was created out of sheer demand, bar-goers fed up with the newfangled liqueurs and ingredients ushered in during the late 19th century.
The original Old Fashioned drink recipe is very simple: bourbon, simple syrup, bitters, and soda water. Add a maraschino cherry or a slice of orange for a bit of sweetness, and you’ve got yourself a pretty good drink.
We decided to mix this classic cocktail up a little bit with one of our interesting fruit syrups, Amoretti Premium Peach Syrup. Our peach syrup brings the sweet and delicious flavors of South Georgia straight to your cocktails. When paired with a mellow bourbon, the taste is guaranteed to be unlike anything you’ve tried before!
Amoretti Peach Old Fashioned Drink Recipe
- 1.5 oz bourbon
- 1 ½ pumps Amoretti Premium Peach Syrup
- 2 dashes orange bitters
- soda water
Add all ingredients to an Old Fashioned glass filled with ice. Stir. Garnish with a maraschino cherry (optional). Enjoy!
We’re big fans of this interesting fruit syrup because it carries all of the natural complexities that are found in real peaches. Of course, there’s a reason for that. Amoretti Premium Peach Syrup, like all of our syrups, is made from real, natural ingredients.
Rather than using artificial ingredients to attempt a recreation of peach (which we would argue can’t really be done), we just go straight to nature. The taste is better; the ingredient label is purer; and the final drink recipe you make at home will be more unique than anything you’ve tried before!
