Campfire Old Fashioned


Recipe: Campfire Old Fashioned (serves one)

  • 2 oz. rye
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 dashes chocolate bitters
  • l large marshmallow

Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into ice-filled Old Fashioned glass. Lightly toast the marshmallow, spear it with a cocktail pick, and place it on top of the glass.

We had a Campfire Old Fashioned for the first time at Saint & Second in the happening Belmont Shore neighborhood of Long Beach. Some mixologists might try to assemble a recipe that captures the essence of a toasted marshmallow, but this cocktail takes a simple and fun approach: include the marshmallow with the drink.

Our version uses maple syrup to enhance that out-in-the-woods feeling. The chocolate bitters (we used Scrappy’s brand) round out the classic s’mores flavor combination.
