Ingredients & Directions

Drink Ingredients:
2oz Bourbon Whiskey (or Rye)
Angostura Bitters
1 Orange
2 tsp. Simple Syrup

Simple Syrup Ingredients:
1/2 Jalapeno pepper sliced
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 Cup Sugar in the Raw
1 Cup Water
1 Orange

Start by creating the simple syrup.
Mix water and sugar in a pot and place on low heat.
Stir mixture until sugar is dissolved.
Add the rinds from an orange, cinnamon and jalapeno.
Let sit on low heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally (longer heat will make a thicker syrup.)
Remove from heat and let cool completely.

Place ice in a stirring glass.
Add three dashes Angostura Bitters.
Add Simple Syrup.
Stir continuously for 60 seconds.
Add Bourbon and stir for another 60 seconds.
Strain over a large ice cube in a Bourbon glass.
Flame an orange peel (squeeze peel, skin side out and light citrus oils with match or cigarette lighter.)
Use the peel to coat the rim of the glass and then add as a garnish.

This recipe will provide you with plenty of left over simple syrup for future cocktails.
