I know I love a cocktail of quality. Whether you like to make them yourself or enjoy one that’s already made, there are options for both. Bully Boy White Whiskey is my go-to spirit. It’s has the attributes of both vodka and whiskey – it’s clean like vodka, but has herby and twiggy notes like whiskey might. Here’s a classic simple recipe with a festive twist. The sage brings out the woodier notes in the Bully Boy White Whiskey, while it’s crisper notes don’t over power the fruit flavors from the apple cider, amaretto, and cherry.

Spiced Persimmon Maple Old Fashioned 

  • 1/4 medium ripe Fuyu persimmon small dice, ends trimmed and discarded
  • 1/8 orange
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 ounces Bully Boy White Whiskey
  • 4 dashes Bittercube Jamaican #2 bitters
  • 1 (3 inch) cinnamon stick for garnish

Combine persimmon, orange, and maple syrup in a glass and muddle just a few times to bruise the orange and just start to break up the persimmon. Add the ice, rye or whiskey, and orange bitters, grate a touch of the cinnamon over the top then stir with the cinnamon stick until chilled through. Serve. {Original recipe found here.} I suggest using the Bittercube Jamaican #2 bitters because the grapefruit and spice notes create a more complex cocktail. For other Bully Boy cocktails, check out a few I whipped up with food blogger Lindsay of The Glutton’s Digest.

If you’re not into making your own cocktails, I’d suggest OM’s organic ready made ones. I’ve tried other pre-made concoctions and none of them comes anywhere close to being as great as OM. It’s strong – you can actually tell that there’s vodka in the mix. The Coconut Lychee flavor hits you with a fresh coconut taste and finishes with the delicate floral lychee fruit flavor.  OM is the first of its kind, boasting a USDA certified organic label and high-quality 30 proof vodka-based cocktail crafted from American grown organic grain. Sweetened with organic agave nectar, OM cocktails contain no preservatives or artificial flavors. Even the coloring is fruit- and vegetable-based and non-GMO. Go ahead, give it I try. I love the coconut lychee flavor!

You won’t want to dilute your craft cocktail or your top shelf spirt with ice. I’d suggest these Teroforma whiskey stones which are sourced and made in the USA.
