Our Smoked Old Fashion Recipe
A smoked old fashioned is the perfect end to a long day out on the trails—but you can enjoy it anytime, anywhere and here’s our you can make your own at home.
- 1.5 Tbs. Simple Syrup
- ¼ cup whiskey, bourbon, or brandy, etc.
- ½ cup lemon lime soda mixer
- Dash of bitters
- 1 orange sliced
- 1 cherry
Preheat your Grill to 180F or 82°C to make a batch of smoked simple syrup. While the grill pre-heats add 1 cups water to 1 cup sugar. Dissolve. Pour into a pan with at least 1-2-inch-high sides. Place on the bottom rack for 2 hours. With heat guard gloves, remove from the grill and cool completely. Bottle in an airtight container such as a mason jar and store in the refrigerator for up to a month.
Slice oranges and drain your cherries. Place your cherries on a small baking tray on the top shelf of the grill. You can place the cut oranges direct on the bottom grate. Smoke oranges and cherries for 10-30 minutes according to your smoke preference (10 minutes being for a little smoke and 30 minutes for a lot of smoke.)
Pour simple syrup mix to cover the bottom of your CamelBak Horizon Rocks Tumbler. Add ¼ cup of whiskey or your alcohol of choice. Stir. Add ice. Stir again. Add ½ cup of your favourite lemon lime soda mixer. Stir until foamed. Garnish with smoked orange and/or cherry.
For a mocktail use barley tea (steeped for 10+ minutes) instead of whiskey. Bitters tend to have a very minute amount of alcohol in comparison to the actual drink. Keep it as is or purchase non-alcoholic bitters like Dram.
