Category: Fruit, Smoothies

 Ingredients List

  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4oz of your favorite bourbon (Woodford Reserve is my recommendation)
  • 3oz freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 3 splashes of orange bitters
  • ~~~~~~~~~~For Garnish:~~~~~~~~~~~
  • Cinnamon stick
  • Dried cranberries that have been soaked overnight in bourbon
  • Orange slice
  • One ice ball (or very large ice cube)


Begin by making the cinnamon simple syrup. Combine the cinnamon, water, and sugar in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium. Stir and simmer until syrup becomes golden brown. Remove from heat and let cool.

To make the Old Fashioned Holiday, combine 2oz of the cinnamon simple syrup with the bourbon, orange juice, and orange bitters into a shaker. Fill shaker with ice and shake several times. Pour drink through a strainer into an Old Fashioned glass.

Add ice ball to the drink, and garnish with a sprinkle of bourbon soaked cranberries, a cinnamon stick, and a slice of fresh orange. Enjoy!
