You’ve heard of your standard margarita, french 75 and whiskey sour cocktails, but have you ever heard of an old overholt cocktail? If you’re looking for a good cocktail that has rye whiskey in it, look no further. While this cocktail has no juice, there’s a certain sweetness to it. Between the caramel undertones and spicy cinnamon flavor in the rye, along with a few other ingredients, this is the perfect refreshing cocktail over ice.

Sweet vermouth is one of the key ingredients in this cocktail. Also having sweet notes, the flavor profiles of the cocoa, dark fruits, vanilla and caramel enhance this cocktail. Between the sweetness of the rye and sweet vermouth, there needs to be another flavor to balance it out. Adding Angostura bitters to this cocktail adds a spicy and bitter flavor, with a hint of clove and cinnamon. Garnish is important for the aesthetic of the cocktail. To top off your drink, add an orange peel as your garnish. The color of the orange peel pairs well with the brown cocktail, making it look and taste delicious.

If you’re looking to make an easy cocktail with only four ingredients, an old overholt is the perfect drink to make. Whether you’re hosting and bartending for the night, making yourself a delicious drink or heading to the cocktail bar, this is a simple drink that anyone can make. Here’s how to make an old overholt cocktail.
