Make a Flaming Bourbon Cocktail – The Old Locks

Join Mischief’s Bar Manager James Decker and learn how to make a unique variation on an Old Fashioned with Canal Street Bourbon, spiced up with allspice bitters, sweetened with a walnut liqueur and flaming cinnamon and rosemary.

2 ounces Canal Street Bourbon
1/4 ounce Side Track Nocino Walnut Liqueur
10 drops Addition Bitters – Allspice bitters

For flaming garnish:
1 whole cinnamon stick
1 sprig fresh rosemary
2 – 4 ounces 190 proof spirit like Everclear to soak the herbs

To Make:
Place bourbon, nocino and bitters in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Place a large ice cube in a rocks glass and strain chilled cocktail into glass over ice.

Soak the herbs in a high proof spirit for a couple of minutes. Use tongs to remove (so there is no high proof spirit on your fingers when you light a match). Place the herbs on the top of the glass and using a match ignite the herbs. Let the herbs flame for a bit, then extinguish by placing a dry shaker over the whole glass.
