All great things on their own. But better together. In cocktail form.
Committee in Boston understands this, and that’s why they’ve created the Burnt Forest. It’s got a little bit of everything—citrus, sour cherry, a faint dark chocolate sweetness and just enough bourbon to bring it all home.
Oh, and a blowtorched pinecone. Which... you should consider optional.
Here’s how to make the thing:
2 oz bourbon
2-3 tsp cherry puree
1/2 oz chocolate liqueur
1/2 oz cinnamon syrup
3/4 oz lime juice
First, make cinnamon syrup at home by adding six to eight crushed cinnamon sticks to simple syrup in a pan and boiling for 10 minutes. Strain syrup and set aside. Then, add all ingredients to a shaker and shake. Pour in a tall glass filled with crushed ice, and top with ginger beer and probably not a torched pinecone.
