This drink is is a twist on one of the most popular classic cocktails, the Old Fashioned, by adding grilled peaches and a spicy kick from Crazy Gringa’s Datil Pepper Hot Sauce. The grilled peach gives a fresh summery sweetness that combines with the mellow caramel and vanilla flavors that come from the Templeton Rye we chose as the base spirit. The spice from the Datil Pepper Hot Sauce has a nice slow burn that builds at the end of each sip. This is a great drink for fans of bold flavors and Old Fashioned cocktails and the addition of the spicy pepper makes this drink a very manly drink that might be perfect for Father’s Day!
Fired Peach Old Fashioned
- 2 oz Templeton Rye Whiskey
- 1/2 grilled or bruleed small peach
- 2 brandied cherry (our recipe here!)
- 1/4th teaspoon Crazy Gringa Datil Pepper Hot Sauce (or other hot sauce that might be local to you!)
- 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
Lightly brush the slices of the peach with a bit of oil and grill them to get a bit of char on them. Place the peach into the bottom of a mixing glass with the brandied cherry, hot sauce and bitters. Muddle the peach and cherry until the peach is fully broken down. Add in the Templeton and double strain into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with a peach slice and a brandied cherry.
