How to make a Chestnut Old Fashioned cocktail?

Prepare Your Glass:
Start by selecting a sturdy rocks glass or old-fashioned glass. Fill it with ice cubes to chill while you prepare the cocktail. This will help keep your drink cold without diluting it too much.

Muddle the Orange Zest:
Take a piece of orange zest (about the size of a thumbnail) and gently muddle it in the bottom of the glass. This releases the essential oils from the orange peel, which will add a lovely aroma to your cocktail.

Add the Chestnut Liqueur:
Pour 15ml (1/2 oz) of chestnut liqueur into the glass over the muddled orange zest. This adds a rich chestnut flavor to your Old Fashioned.

Add the Bitters:
Add 2 dashes of Angostura bitters to the glass. This will provide depth and complexity to your cocktail.

Pour in the Whisky:
Now, it’s time for the star of the show. Pour 50ml (about 1.5 oz) of your chosen whisky into the glass. Use a good-quality whisky to ensure a flavorful cocktail.

Stir Gently:
Give the ingredients in the glass a gentle stir. You want to mix everything together without over-agitating the drink.

Add the Ice:
Carefully strain your cocktail over the ice in the prepared glass. This will cool down the drink and further dilute it to your desired strength.

Garnish:
To finish, garnish your Chestnut Old Fashioned with a roasted chestnut. You can skewer it on a cocktail pick or simply place it on top of the ice. This adds a delightful visual element and a nutty aroma to the drink.

Serve and Enjoy:
Your Chestnut Old Fashioned is now ready to be enjoyed. Sip it slowly and savor the rich flavors of whisky and chestnut with a hint of orange zest.
