Bittersweet Cocktail

bittersweet cocktail

This is a pretty classic drink that prescribes pretty well to the definition of cocktail from over a hundred years ago. It uses Peychauds bitters, which are a New Orleans staple and the essential cocktail bitter in a Sazerac. Combined with the orange juice and whiskey, Peychauds makes this a cool-looking golden  drink that’s pretty old school in it’s flavor profile.

Bittersweet Cocktail

  • 2 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
  • 1 1/2 oz whiskey of your choice (I recommend bourbon or scotch)
  • 1 tsp simple syrup
  • fresh-squeezed juice of 1 orange (about 2 oz)
  • shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass
  • garnish with an orange slice
