Our cocktail contributor Anthony DeSerio knocked us out on the show by whipping up a mouth-watering Old Fashioned, combining an aged rum with black walnut bitters, served on ice. Feel free to use whatever rum you have on hand, though Anthony, who is an ambassador for Patron, used his sponsor’s Pyrat XO Reserve aged rum. (Faith loves this brand because it sips like a smooth aged cognac with a whisper of caramel.)
The Fee Brothers black walnut bitters can be found or ordered at most liquor stores. Call ahead to make sure it’s in stock.
