The Old Fashioned is the granddaddy of all classic cocktails, one of the first known examples of combining spirits with bitters and sugar to make a libation greater than the sum of its parts. Nodding to its status as a staple in the arsenal of millions of bartenders the world over, Strongwater aimed to make the very best bottled version out there; after three years of tinkering, they reached their goal. The caramel notes of organic demerara sugar, citrus tang of fresh orange peel, and tart sweetness of organic cherries combine in mountain spring water, enlivened by a nutty and complex blend of cinnamon, clove, cardamom, and bitter herbs. Well-balanced, roundly smooth, and layered, this blend is good enough to drink on its own over ice. For the cocktail, just add a favorite whiskey, and garnish with an orange peel, a cherry, or both. Go ahead, put on the Rat Pack, dress up as Doc Holliday, and shoot your shot.
Suggested Use: Add 1/4 oz of Old Fashioned Syrup to 2 oz of your favorite whiskey, bourbon, or rye. Serve over ice, stir, and garnish with an orange peel, cherry, or both!
