Joaquín Simó’s Old-Fashioned

Joaquín Simó, Pouring Ribbons | New York

Placing in third in our recent blind tasting, Simó‘s recipe calls on two ounces of Russell’s Reserve 10 Year Old Bourbon, a quarter-ounce of rich demerara syrup and three types of bitters. The tasters thought the drink spicy and complex, with the sugar content and mouth-feel right on the money.


Serving: 1

  • 2 ounces Russell's Reserve 10 Year Old Bourbon
  • 1/4 ounce rich demerara syrup (2:1, demerara syrup:water)
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 dashes Regans' orange bitters
  • 1 dash Bittermens Mole bitters

Garnish: orange peel

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass over ice and stir briskly for 15 to 20 seconds.
  2. Strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube.
  3. Garnish with a long swath of orange peel.
