Sexy Old Fashioned

How, pray tell, can an Old Fashioned get any sexier than it already is? With the addition of herbal Bénédictine and savory allspice dram.

1½ oz. rye whiskey
1 oz. bourbon
¼ oz. Bénédictine
1 barspoon allspice dram (or pimento dram)
1 barspoon rich simple syrup (2:1)
3 dashes Angostura bitters

Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: Old Fashioned
Garnish: orange twist

Combine ingredients in a mixing glass and stir briefly with ice cubes until chilled. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass over one large ice cube. Garnish.
