The Old Fashioned is an infinitely reconfigurable template for great spirit-forward drinks, and the Kentucky River is one of the more creative riffs we’ve seen on the classic formula.
Hailing from the Rosina cocktail lounge at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, the recipe cleverly swaps crème de cacao for the usual sugar or syrup, and amps up the Southern vibe with peach bitters.
- 2 parts Bourbon
- ½ part Crème de cacao
- 3 dashes Peach bitters
Stir all ingredients with ice until well-chilled. Strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
