Maple Bourbon Black Cherry ‘Old Fashioned’ Ice Pops

With the crazy winter weather we’re having, these are perfect for the next warm spell. Plus, the bourbon adds a little heat in the back of your throat!

This recipe is created by Meg Dubina, the food & lifestyle guru and proud New Englander behind​ Bread + Barrow, who stumbled upon DRINKmaple in her favorite sandwich shop in Rockport, Massachusetts. One sip and she was hooked.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup black cherries
  • 1/4 Cup maple syrup, plus ½ cup
  • 2 1/2 Cups maple water, such as DRINKmaple pure maple water
  • 1/4 Cup bourbon
  • 1 Dash of Angostura bitters

Black Walnut Old Fashioned

The phone is off, computer’s shut down, camera is stowed away, and everyone is coming home… the day is coming to an end. Just before I start cooking for the family, I’ll pull out a small cheese or charcuterie board, gather with everyone, poor a drink, and catch up with how the day went. It’s this time of day I love the most. Hearing the excitement of the resident six-year-old’s new discoveries and the husband’s intel on who has created a new dish or drink in Dallas.

Being a sommelier and a wine/spirits rep, he has a lot to tell when the work day is over. One day in particular, he came home and revealed that VH in Oakcliff was using black walnut bitters for a new twist on the Old Fashioned. Being that my favorite fall cocktails are Manhattans and Old Fashions, I had to check this combo out and was happy that I did! It’s just the perfect fall and winter cocktail. The only thing missing is a fireplace, which sadly we don’t have. Maybe I should build one outside — oh the stories we could tell over a fire pit!

Based off of how I create an Old Fashioned, I substituted black walnut bitters for Angostura and Demerara sugar cubes for white and created a complex flavor combination that I now favor over the traditional. So, when it’s time to shut everything off and the house fills up again, I reach for the bitters, sit down, and enjoy the stories of my family.

Black Walnut Old Fashioned

Slightly sweet and smooth with notes of caramel, orange, and roasted walnuts, this cocktail is the ultimate way to enjoy the fall. If you enjoy whisky, bourbon, and rye this is comfort in a glass. Cheers!

It all starts with splashing a Demerara (brown sugar) cube with black walnut bitters.

Muddle the sugar cube and a slice of orange zest in an old fashioned glass for about 1 minute.

Add rye whisky and stir. Then finish off with an ice cube. Serve and enjoy!
