A flavorful spin on an old favorite, the Old Fashioned. You are going to be hooked. Just wait, you'll see.
If you don't have access to organic, raw sugar use date sugar or as a last resort sugar. The raw or date sugar has a bit more flavor than a plain white, processed sugar does.

Serves: 2
  • roasted cherries
  • 2 cups fresh, organic dark cherries, pitted and cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons organic raw sugar (see recipe summary for substitutions)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cardamon
  • cocktail
  • 8 roasted cherries
  • 2 thin wedges of tangelo (an orange will work just as well)

  • 4-6 dashes bitters (I prefer Wigle Whiskey Lavender Bitters)
  • 4 ounces bourbon or aged whiskey
  • Ice
  • Splash of club soda, optional
  1. Roast the cherries
  2. Roast the sugar and cardamom coated cherries on parchment paper in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool. Store in a tightly sealing jar in the refrigerator.
  4. Stir the cocktail
  5. Dividing the cherries and a wedge of tangelo between two glasses, mash the cherries, tangelo and bitters using a muddler or the back of a spoon.
