This favorite, on the menu at The Cellar at Beecher's in New York City, is a unique take on the classic Old Fashioned that features muddled fig.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 2 ounces Rittenhouse Rye
  • 1 ounce turbinado simple syrup
  • 1 dried Black Mission fig
  • Ice
  • Orange peel


Muddle the rye with the simple syrup and fig. Add ice and stir 20 times. Garnish with orange peel.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
