Bourbon is synonymous with barbecue, so why not take a bourbon based cocktail, the Old Fashioned, and give it a barbecue twist.

The Old Fashioned traditionally uses a twist of orange peel, here we take the peel and a slice or two of the orange and grill them to burn the edges and add a bit of a barbecue twist.

For those of you who aren’t bourbon fans I’ve done a second version that uses the orange juice to add sweetness.

Ingredients

Burnt Orange Old Fashioned

  • A slice of orange peel and a slice of orange
  • 60ml of Bourbon (I used Jack Daniels)
  • 1tsp of granulated sugar
  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • Ice

Twisted Burnt Orange Old Fashioned

  • A slice of orange peel and a slice of orange
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 60ml of Bourbon (I used Jack Daniels)
  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • Ice

Method

  1. Fire up your Big Green Egg to about 250°C with the cast iron griddle in a direct setup.
  2. Once the griddle is hot add the peel and the orange slice.
  3. Sprinkle the orange slice with some sugar which will caramelise.
  4. After about 2 minutes turn and sear the other side. You’re looking to burn the peel edges and get a some caramelisation on the slice of orange.

Burnt Orange Old Fashioned

  • Add the sugar, bitters and bourbon to a glass and stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Add the peel and ice.

Twisted Burnt Orange Old Fashioned

  • Squeeze the orange juice into your glass and add the bourbon, burnt orange, bitters and ice.
