“Old Fashioned” Simple Syrup


I got this idea from Jamie Boudreau – famous mixologist.  I make this with WheyLow, which goes into solution, but I can only get 3/4 cup to dissolve.  Plus, the WheyLow will start to come out of solution after a few days.  I prefer my house made bitters, of course, but Angostura works well.  I don’t think Splenda would work here since it will not make a syrup.

This syrup lends itself to several different drinks.  By changing the bitters and the base liquor, you can make a Winter Old Fashioned or a Tequila Traditional al Cubo

  • 1 cup Turbinado Sugar, or 3/4 cup WheyLow
  • 4 ozs. Good Bourbon
  • 2 ozs. Angostura Bitters
  1. Add all ingredients to a sauce pan over medium heat
  2. Stir constantly until the sugar has dissolved
