Praline Old Fashioned

Submitted by: ILovePecans.org

Pralines just got a makeover…and so did the Old Fashioned. This drink is terrific as a pre-dinner cocktail as well as a smooth after dinner drink…and you can even eat the garnish!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecan pieces, toasted
  • 4 pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup ground pecans
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 strips orange rind
  • 6 to 8 shakes orange bitters
  • 1/2 cup bourbon

Method

  1. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring pecans, water, sugar, and orange rind to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 10 minutes. Strain and cool. Reserve candied orange rind.
  2. Dip the rim of four lowball glasses into water and then into ground pecans. Fill glasses with ice. Add 1 to 2 shakes of orange bitters and 1 1/2 tablespoons of the pecan syrup. Stir until chilled, about 10 stirs.
  3. Pour 2 tablespoons of bourbon into each glass and stir until well chilled.
  4. Wrap candied orange rind around a pecan, secure with a toothpick and place on top of glass. Serve drink immediately.
