German-style Old Fashioned Feat. Dampfwerk Helgolander

Sweet nibblings this is delicious
— The creator of the cocktail

No surprise here, just a straight forward Old Fashioned BUT with a German twist. Yes, the Germans can be “hip” and “with it”. The purpose of this cocktail is to show you that you shouldn’t be afraid of The Helgolander, as it can be multipurpose. Just like when Leeloo from the Fifth Element said “multi-pass”! Same gist.

The Helgolander can reduce the amount of simple syrup, sweetener, or even replace the use of bitters in a cocktail. Enjoy this cocktail in the company of old friends and new. Prost!


2 oz Penninger American Style Whiskey

1/4 oz Helgolander Herbal Liqueur

1/4 tsp Demerara Gum Syrup (or use your own simple syrup, this particular syrup compliments our liqueur)

Garnish with orange


Stir all ingredients over ice, then strain into a glass with 1 large ice cube. Twist the orange peel over your drink and then garnish your heart out.
