Kentucky Cocktail Recipe: Willett Old Fashioned

With Kentucky bourbon being the hottest spirit around these days, don’t think of this drink as “old” – but a quintessential American classic. Willett 5-Year Rye blends beautifully with other exotic flavors to give this cocktail a unique Bluegrass flavor.
1 dash Bittermens celery bitters
4 dashes Angostura bitters
.25 oz. tarragon syrup
.5 oz. Pierre Ferrand Pineau des Charentes
2 oz. Willet 5-Year Rye Whiskey
Mix all ingredients together and stir with ice to chill.
Serve over a large block of ice in an Old Fashioned glass.
Garnish with a lemon twist and a spritz of orange oil, made by twisting and squeezing an orange peel over the drink before serving.
