Guest Feature: Kelly Lyons
For the drink:
2 oz bourbon (Kelly recommends Woodford Reserve or Rowan's Creek)
1 oz Mr. Black Cold Brew Coffee Liquor (or sub in your favorite coffee liqueur, I used Borsci)
2 oz Water
Dash Angostura bitters
Dash Orange bitters
For the garnish:
Combine the drink ingredients in cocktail mixer. Fill with ice until all of the liquid is contacting the cubes. Stir for about 20 seconds until chilled. Pour over a large ice cube in your rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon peel, if desired.
Thanks to Kelly Lyons for her take on an old fashioned. While I didn't have the coffee liqueur she recommended, I substituted in Borsci Elisir S. Marzano, an Italian liqueur with hints of coffee. I loved it, but I'm sure it would have been even better if I had gotten the Mr. Black. I'll definitely come back to this recipe again as the weather gets colder.
