Add the sugar, bitters and 0.5 shot of Bénédictine into a tumbler glass. Stir for 1 minute with until the sugar is completely dissolved with bitters and Bénédictine. Add an ice cube and stir for another minute. Add another shot of Bénédictine and 2 more ice cubes, stirring this time for 2 minutes. Then add in the remaining half shot of Bénédictine with 2 more ice cubes, stirring for a further 2 minutes. Add additional ice if desired before garnishing.
Very aromatic with the diluted ice releasing the herbal flavours of the Bénédictine. The slow dilution is essential to the final taste of the cocktail. With thanks to Adam Freeth of the Shaker UK BarSchool who recommended this variation on the traditional “Old Fashioned” recipe made using Bourbon.
With a twist of orange peel resting within the cocktail – for a splash of colour and tangy-ness.
