Elf’s Own

A Christmas Old Fashioned

This is one of those cocktails that evolves on your tongue long after the first sip. At first you might think you’re drinking a standard old fashioned, but it slowly opens up on the palate revealing the hidden treasures of the smoke and cinnamon infused maple syrup and chocolate notes of the bitter.

6 cl Woodford Reserve Bourbon
1 dash Chocolate bitter
1 cl Smokey maple/cinnamon syrup

Stir ingredients with ice for app. eight seconds and serve in a chilled low ball glass. Garnish with a square plate of salted chocolate.

This is a classic man’s drink that will help you merge the vibe of Christmas with that mad men attitude you love to rock. Find it at Duck and Cover through out December.

I believe that true mastery eventually leads to original creation given the right conditions. I love creative cocktails that push the limits of flavor pairing. But I can't deny I have a personal preference for whisky and love everything that is clear and stirred.
