There are days when you’re completely worn out-- these are just the times you cannot find the right drink that lets you unwind. If an espresso is what wakes you up in the morning and if a classic bourbon permits you to settle down in the evening, then the Espresso Old Fashioned is just what you need. It is a very sophisticated yet amicable coffee drink that features an enticing mix of bourbon and espresso. It is a delicious drink that has been crafted for finer palates. It can be served as a delicious drink right after dinner. If you do not want to use espresso, you can easily substitute it with coffee.


  • Room temperature espresso – 60 ml
  • Rye Whiskey – 30 ml
  • Cinnamon sugar or agave nectar – 2 teaspoons
  • Dash of bitters
  • FOR GARNISH: Lemon peel

The Process

Combine espresso, bourbon, bitters, and cinnamon sugar or agave nectar in a cocktail shaker and fill ice in it.

Keep shaking it until the outer body of the shaker is frosty, which should take about 30 seconds.

Then strain the mix into a lowball glass full of ice.

Twist some lemon peel over the cocktail to release the oils, then rub it over the rim of the glass.

Drink up before the ice melts!
