I was asked to review the Arctic Chill cocktail muddler and I was super excited to try out this product since I’m clearly a fan of smashed cocktails (see Strawberry Basil Smash recipe). It’s a bit harder to find recipes for winter smashed cocktails but I was lucky enough to find some inspiration at GQ Magazine. The muddler was really easy to use and far more effective than using a spoon or even a traditional wooden muddler. I recommend getting one so you can up your at home cocktail game. Read on for this super simple Smashing Old Fashioned recipe.
Smashing Old Fashioned 1 slice fresh orange (with the rind is fine) 1 smoked southern cherries from Lemon Bird Preserves or good quality cocktail cherries 1 teaspoon turbinado sugar 1 dash angostura bitters Small ice cubes 2 oz bourbon – I used Few Rye
Grab a wide mouth sturdy glass or cocktail shaker and use the Arctic Chill (or other muddler) to muddle the orange slice, cherry, sugar and bitters together. Pour into a low ball and add a couple of ice cubes, bourbon and stir. You can also add a splash of club soda. Enjoy!
