Cocktail Inspiration:

This is a homage to the classic era of cocktail making. An untraditional approach to the old fashion while still holding on to the most important preparation principles. Historically the 19th hole at a golf course was the bar on the estate once you finish playing. Many players in classic golf would call for classic cocktails such as Manhattans and Martinis. In the acceptance that we’re working with a scotch I felt a old fashion would have a more exciting profile that can showcase the spirits depth while also showing some creativity by using an underproof rum that has notes of banana and vanilla. This all surrounded by the floral nature of the orange blossom and unique flavors encompassed by the fig will surely even make the grounds keeper at the golf club jealouse.
