Gold Fashioned

Gold Fashioned

Honey and ginger come together to create a bright and unique Old Fashioned. The sweet honeyed notes of Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey feature prominently in this spirit-forward cocktail. House made ginger syrup requires a little extra work in advance, but pays off with its bold, spicy flavor.

Creator: Rachel Ramirez

2 oz TN Whiskey
.25 oz honey simple (2:1 ratio of raw honey to water)
.25 oz ginger syrup
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 dash Peychaud's bitters

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass. Add ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over one large ice cube or sphere. Express the oils from a lemon peel over the top of the drink and insert peel into the drink.

For the ginger syrup, juice one pound of fresh ginger root. Measure the ginger juice and add an equal amount of sugar, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Add sugar until the desired level of sweetness is reached. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
