Hi, I'm mathilde

Who wants to get dangerous? With a fun, simple spin on another classic: Smoky Cinnamon Old Fashioned

This version is not too far off from the classic because how can you truly improve upon such a great drink? But two minor tweaks, add some fun flavors, and also doubles as a kind of party trick if you are making these for guests and want to impress them. And I say any cocktail that involves a little bit of fire is always fun too

It’s a pretty simple drink in that it doesn’t involve many ingredients. But it still ends up tasting complex. I also love drinks that have a couple of cherries, as it’s like getting a mini dessert with your drink.

Here’s what you need to make your classy Smoky Cinnamon Old Fashioned

  • 1 teaspoon Simple Syrup or Super Fine Sugar
  • 2 dashes A Bitters
  • 1.5 oz Rye or Bourbon Whiskey
  • Orange Peel
  • Luxardo Cherry (Or Maraschino if you prefer)
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • Cedar Board + Kitchen Torch
  • Ice

Now here’s how to make it…

First, use the kitchen torch to burn a cinnamon stick, then burn the cedar board, place your favorite cocktail glass immediately over the board, trapping in the smoke. In the glass, combine the simple syrup (or sugar) and bitters. Give that a few quick stirs.

Fold and squeeze the orange peel over the drink, then lightly rub the edges of the glass with the peel before adding it to the glass. Add the ice (I love a big ice cube here) and pour in the whiskey. Garnish with your toasty cinnamon stick and a cherry
