Rye Old Fashioned
One of the feature cocktails for Virginia Spirits Month 2017. The Old Fashioned cocktail is one of the best ways to showcase an aged spirit. Simple and easy to make, all while keeping the base spirit center stage. The extra proof really holds up well in a cocktail without worry of losing any flavor.
2 oz Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye "92 Proof"
¼ oz 2:1 Demerara syrup
couple dashes of orange and Angostura bitters
Combine all in a rocks glass. Add ice and stir until well chilled and diluted. Garnish with an orange twist.
