AKA:

Rye Old-Fashioned

Review:

To adhere to the original recipe, you should smash a sugar cube and then painstakingly stir this with bitters into a paste. Life is just too short to faff around, so instead, I've used pre-dissolved sugar (syrup). Depending on your personal tastes you may want to reduce this syrup to a mere 5ml or it up to 10ml. Syrup allows you to find your personal sweet spot and then consistently hit it. Once achieved, you've a delicious subtly cider-influenced Rye Old-Fashioned.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2007 by Richard Boccato and Michael McIlroy at Little Branch bar in New York City, USA. Originally built in the glass with a sugar cube and made with three American ingredients, hence the name: rye whisky, applejack and Regan's Orange Bitters.
