Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned

"A seasonal twist on the classic whiskey cocktail, the Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned is a perfect cocktail for a chilly night. Toasted pecans soak in whiskey for days before the infused alcohol is combined with sugar and bitters to make a homemade Old Fashioned. This infused whiskey makes enough for 6 old fashioneds."

This recipe takes a little more work and time - but the payoff is sweet and toasty!

Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned

Ingredients for the Toasted Pecan Whiskey

  • 1/2 cups pecans, toasted

  • 1 1/2 cups whiskey (a good drinking one)

Ingredients for the drink:

  • 1 sugar cube (or 1/2 tsp sugar)

  • 4 dashes Angostura bitters

  • 2 oz. Toasted Pecan Whiskey, recipe above

  • ice ball

  • Rim with Candied Pecan Sugar Rimmer

Directions for the Toasted Pecan Whiskey:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Place the pecans on a baking sheet. Transfer to the preheated oven.

  3. Toast the pecans for 10-15 minutes or until browned and fragrant. (Keep an eye on them, as you could potentially burn them if not paying attention!)

  4. Remove from the oven, and let cool to room temperature.

  5. Transfer the cooled pecans to a mason jar, and pour the whiskey on top of them.

  6. Let the whiskey infuse for 3-4 days. (Don't go any longer than 4 days, as the pecans could dry the whiskey out.)

Directions for the drink:

  1. Rim your glass by swirling a some maple syrup around top of your glass then spin the rim of your glass in your Candied Pecan Sugar Rimmer.

  2. In your rimmed whiskey glass, measure the sugar cube/loose sugar and dash in the Angostura bitters.

  3. Using a muddler, break down the sugar cube and combine it with the bitters, coating the sides of the glass as the sugar and bitters mix.

  4. Place whiskey stones or a large ice cube, then pour the Toasted Pecan Whiskey over the cubes, swirling it to mix with the bitters and sugar mixture.

  5. Serve and enjoy!
