How to Make The Reverend from Seersucker

How to Make The Reverend from Seersucker

Chalk it up to the week's latest Nor'easter, but something about these recent events might have left some New Yorkers seeking a higher power. Fortunately, we can find solace exactly where we left it -- behind the bar. Today's cocktail recipe, The Reverend, was created by the team at Seersucker Brooklyn. The drink uses rhubarb to riff on a classic old fashioned, combining notes of black pepper, orange and "toasty" caramel in a glass.

The Drink: The Reverend

The Bar: Seersucker Brooklyn

The Price: $11

The Ingredients: 2 oz Elijah Craig bourbon, ¼ oz black pepper syrup (1 part hot water, 1 part sugar, ¼ parts ground pepper. Mix all ingredients and stir until all ingredients are well integrated, chill and strain), 4 dashes of Rhubarb bitters (we use our own however you can also use Fee Brothers rhubarb bitters)

The Method: Mix bourbon and syrup. Add bitters, plenty of ice and stir lightly. Strain in a chilled rocks glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
