A Winter “Old Fashioned” Simple Syrup


Whiskey CocktailThis is based on “Old Fashioned” Simple Syrup, an idea I got from Jamie Boudreau – famous mixologist.  The changes are the brown sugar and different bitters.  I prefer my house made bitters, of course, but Fee Brothers Aromatic Bitters works well.  Angostura will not work because it lacks the cinnamon flavor of the Fee Brothers.

  • 1 cup Brown Sugar, or 3/4 cup Brown WheyLow
  • 4 ozs. Good Bourbon
  • 2 ozs. Fee Brothers Aromatic Bitters
  1. Add all ingredients to a sauce pan over medium heat
  2. Stir constantly until the sugar has dissolved
  3. Allow to cool and transfer to a glass bottle.
  4. This will keep refrigerated for a few weeks.
  5. Shake well before using
