Nothing beats a classic cocktail..except a classic cocktail with a twist. In this case, using smoky simple syrup.
Combine 1 cup water with 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup Smoked Cane Syrup. Heat/stir until all sugar has dissolved. Let cool to room temperature.
For the Smoky Old Fashioned:
In a cocktail shaker, combine ice, 1 and 1/2 oz bourbon, 1/2 oz smoky simple syrup, and a couple dashes of bitters (I prefer orange bitters for this cocktail). Stir gently and pour into an lowball glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
