Smoked Date Old Fashioned
The Old Fashioned is a cocktail ripe for reinvention. It’s a simple drink that takes well to different sugars and even unconventional sweeteners in place of the usual white sugar. Case in point, a fascinating smoked date syrup.
1 In a rocks glass filled with ice, add 2 oz rye with ½ oz Smoked Date Syrup (recipe follows) and 2 to 3 dashes Angostura bitters. Stir to chill. Garnish with a piece of orange peel and half a smoked date if you’ve made extra.
