• 2 oz whiskey

• 1/4 oz. a.k.a Mixology Pecan Orgeat

• 3 drops Fee Brothers Aztec Chocolate Bitters

• Orange peel for garnish, (for a seasonal twist, stud the peel with cloves)

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS In a double old-fashioned glass, add ice. Add all ingredients and stir. Cut a slice of orange peel using a sharp knife. Express the orange oil into glass by folding the peel in half over the glass (skin side out). Garnish with the peel twisted over the lip of the glass and ENJOY!
