Kentucky River, an Old Fashioned Riff

At Rosina, one of three Las Vegas bars created in consultation with bartender Sam Ross, the focus is on classic cocktails, with a series of “secret” menus that highlight creative riffs. The Kentucky River, an Old Fashioned riff with notes of peach and chocolate, remains a crowd favorite.

2 oz. bourbon
½ oz. crème de cacao
2-3 dashes peach bitters
Tools: barspoon
Glass: Old Fashioned
Garnish: lemon twist

Pour all of the ingredients into the glass over a large ice cube. Stir briefly to chill, then garnish.
