Elderberry Old-Fashioned

Prep this cozy cocktail now for your holiday celebrations!  It tastes best when the mixture is allowed to rest in the fridge for at least a week. 

If you like sweeter drinks, make this with Sweet's Elderberry Syrup.  If you'd like to tone down the sweetness, use our Shrub instead.  It's delicious either way! 

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 pints cherries, pitted
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 oz bourbon (traditional or NA alternative)
  • 1/2 cup Sweet’s Elderberry Shrub OR Syrup
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup 2
  • Tbsp bitters
  • Zest of one orange
  • Orange peel and pitted cherry on skewer for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Pack cherries and orange zest into an airtight quart container.

2. Mix together 1/2 cup bourbon, Elderberry Shrub (or Syrup if you prefer a sweeter drink), simple syrup, and bitters.

3. Pour mixture over the cherries. Let rest in fridge at least 1 week.

4. After a week, fill each glass with ice, 2 oz bourbon, and a small amount of the berry infusion.  Adjust to taste.

5.  Stir, garnish, and enjoy!
