Szechuan Rye Old Fashioned

Goodbye sugar cube, hello Szechuan pepper simple syrup!  With two types of bitters in the mix, this is a very complex, modern spin on the Old Fashioned.  Give it a try!

1/2oz Szechuan Peppercorn Simple Syrup
2 1/2oz Rye Whiskey
3 dashes Scrappy’s Orange Bitters
2 dashes Scrappy’s Aromatic Bitters
Optional: Zest of ¼ Orange

Garnish: Orange Twist and/or Luxardo Cherry


  1. Combine the rye, simple syrup, bitters and (if desired) orange zest in a mixing glass with ice.
  2. Stir until well chilled.
  3. Strain over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish & serve.
