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:

Lemon peel


Rocks glass

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.
