Rogue Spirits Cocktail: Fashionably Dead

A classic with a Rogue twist.

We call it a Fashionably Dead because it's your classic Old Fashioned cocktail made with our Rogue Spirits Dead Guy Whiskey.

Dead Guy Whiskey is a little different than your typical American Single Malt Whiskey. It's distilled from the same malts used to brew Dead Guy Ale and those are not your typical whiskey malts either. They lend flavors not often found in whiskey, like dark fruit and caramel.

Those unique notes put a twist on the classic Old Fashioned recipe. So we had to rename it: Fashionably Dead.

1 sugar cube (or a bar spoon of simple syrup)
3 dashes of bitters
2 ounces of Dead Guy Whiskey
Orange twist
1 cherry

Muddle the sugar cube and bitters at the bottom of a chilled rocks glass. (If using simple syrup, combine bitters and one bar spoon of syrup.) Add one large ice cube, or three or four smaller cubes. Add Dead Guy Whiskey. Stir until chilled and properly diluted, about 30 seconds. Slip orange twist on the side of the cube and drop cherry in.
