The Faultline Scotch Old-Fashioned
So you wanna make cocktails like the Bar Agricole master himself, Eric Johnson? Lucky for you, I've got his incredible recipe right here. You can always head over to 11th Street and have him make you one of these lovely summer drinks in person, or you can try your hand at home. Either way, the power is yours! (as Captain Planet used to say).
Here's Eric's breakdown:
House Old Fashioned (Traditional)
Build in a bucket glass:
-1.5 oz Faultline Blended Scotch
-1 barspoon Small Hand Foods gum syrup
-1 barspoon maraschino cherry liqueur
-3 dashes of Aromatic Bitters
-3 dashes of Peach Bitters
-add one hand cut ice cube
-garnish with a lemon peel twist
And voila! You're on your way to smoky whisky heaven. This is seriously one of the most refreshing cocktails I've had all year and it's made with one of the most-inexpensive and delicious whiskies we carry!
