1 oz Bourbon, Bulleit (cedar infused)
1 oz Calvados
1⁄2 oz Fernet Branca
1⁄2 oz Maple syrup
Instructions

Stir. Strain into a double old fashioned over ice. Garnish with thin red apple slice.

Notes

The Infusion is very quick and simple. Per 750ml bottle of Bourbon (I use Bulleit at home, and Four Roses at work, both work well) add a SMALL fistful of food grade cedar chips. Any store that sells barbeque chips should have cedar (about $5 for a big bag). Throw it all in a mason jar for 3-4 hours, agitating occasionally, and then strain it back into the bottle. The more chips you use the shorter the infusion time, but you're going to lose a lot more bourbon to the chips. You should lose about an ounce per bottle. And don't let it sit for more than four hours, cause it can get extremely bitter.

Sorry Zachary, I haven't checked back in a bit.

You can just toss the chips out after, or throw them in a batch of rich simple and simmer it for 15min. Then your left with an intense cedar syrup, which I've been using a lot.
Cheers!


I did not have cedar chips handy, and used a basic rye instead. Used a little less Fernet and maple (1 part of each to 3 parts each of the rye and Calvados). Delicious. Will try with cedar infused bourbon in future.
