How To Make A Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned
Infuse The Whiskey:
Preheat the oven, and place the pecans on a baking sheet.
Transfer the pecans to the oven and toast for 10-15 minutes… or until browned and fragrant.
Keep an eye on the pecans as you’re toasting them. You’ll have to start over if they burn because the burnt pecans will give the whiskey an acrid taste.
When they’re toasted, remove them from the oven, and let them cool completely.
Once cool, transfer to a mason jar, and pour the whiskey on top.
Let the whiskey infuse for 3-4 days.
When done, remove the pecans from the whiskey and throw them out. If the pecans stay in the whiskey longer, you’ll run the risk of them drying out the whiskey, and we don’t want that to happen.
Make A Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned
In an Old Fashioned glass or a rocks glass, measure the sugar cube (or the sugar) and dash in the Angostura bitters.
Use a muddler to break down the sugar, as well as combine it with the bitters.
Place whiskey stones or a large ice cube inside the glass, then pour the Toasted Pecan Whiskey over the cubes.
