Smoked Maple Old Fashioned Recipe

One of our most popular cocktail kits with Woodford Reserve Bourbon is a Canadian twist on a classic - the Old Fashioned cocktail. Typically with spirit, sugar and bitters - this deliciously luscious take is filled with a slight earthy smokiness with just the right about of sweetness. You can purchase the full set here or in our sought after Bourbon Lover's Kit and light up some creativity at home!

Bourbon Lover's Cocktail Kit


Set up provided wood chips on a heat proof surface ( a plate works), light wood chip on fire. As wood chip is burning, cover the flame with an upside down rocks glass, fire should subside and smoke the glass, leave for 5-10 seconds.


Flip the rocks glass over once smoke filled. Add 2oz (4 tablespoon) Woodford Reserve Bourbon


Add 0.3oz (3/4 tablespoon) of smoked maple syrup labelled 'OF' and 3-4 drops Angostura Bitters (dropper bottle). Fill glass with ice and stir for 10-15 seconds until cold.


Garnish with an orange zest ( squeeze the peel over the glass for best aromatics) or a dehydrated orange wheel.


Pro Tip: make sure to add enough ice when mixing! Fill the glass with ice to cover your liquid plus a bit more - this helps the temperature stay constant so your beverage stays cold and does not over-dilute over time.
