Coffee Pecan Old Fashioned

This Old Fashioned is best described as a bite of pecan pie, a taste of coffee, a nibble of dark chocolate, and a sip of fine bourbon.  Always a hit at the events and pop-ups we’ve done, it is one of my personal favorites. Simple to make, you can easily adjust the sweet/bitter balance. I prefer a high rye bourbon with this cocktail, but you should use your favorite.

The flavor profile of Doc Elliott’s Mixology™ Coffee Pecan Bitters is bitterness and spiced coffee on the front, soon followed by pecan with notes of dark chocolate as the bitterness rapidly fades.  The finish is coffee, pecan, and chocolate.  For this reason, we use agave, which is fructose, bringing sweet to the beginning then quickly fading, making it the perfect complement to our Coffee Pecan Bitters in our Coffee Pecan Old Fashioned,

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz. Bourbon
  • 5-6 Dashes Doc Elliott’s Coffee Pecan Bitters
  • 1/2 – 1 barspoon Agave Nectar – to Taste
  • Orange peal for garnish
Directions:
  1. Chill a single Old Fashioned glass with ice and water
  2. Combine all of the ingredients, except the garnish, in a mixing glass with ice and stir to chill
  3. Strain into chilled glass with fresh ice
  4. Express the orange peel over the drink and float the peel

Cheers!
