Lost in the Woods

Ever been lost in the woods? It sucks. But this cocktail does not.

We took the Old Forester Signature 100 proof Whisky and created a simple and delicious cocktail using a few of our favorite elements - gomme syrup, Luxardo cherries, bitters and Cocchi Rosa.

An aperitif wine blend of two aromatic varietals (Brachetto and Malvasia), Cocchi Rosa imparts notes of wild rose and summer berries. These are blended with herbs, fruit and spices, most notably gentian, cinchona and citrus like for the Bianco classic version, but with an extra addition of Ginger and rose petals. 

A quick chill, and you'll be drinking this boozy cocktail down quicker than you can make SOS smoke signals. Honestly, with this drink your hand, you probably won't want to be found.
