Butterscotch Den Old Fashioned

A butterscotch-sweetened glow up of the classic.

The Butterscotch Den’s take on the classic Old Fashioned may feature unconventional ingredients, such as butterscotch candy and liqueur, but it speaks to the bar’s identity. “It’s the high-brow and lowbrow of old-school steak houses and honoring the drinks of that era that used those types of things,” says co-owner Trevor Easter, “but giving them a glow up and showing how versatile they can be with some imagination.”


  • 1 1/2 oz. Tennessee whiskey (such as George Dickel)
  • 1/4 oz. rye whiskey
  • 1/4 oz. medium-aged rum (Butterscotch Den uses El Dorado 5 year)
  • 1/4 oz. Butterscotch Magic
  • 2 dashes Butterscotch Chartreuse Bitters
  • Tools:mixing glass, barspoon
  • Glass:Old Fashioned
  • Garnish:dehydrated orange wheel


Stir all of the ingredients with ice, then strain over a large ice cube and garnish.

Butterscotch Magic Combine 8 oz. of butterscotch liqueur (such as Bols) with 8 oz. of demerara syrup (1:1). Keeps refrigerated for up to 2 months.

Butterscotch Chartreuse Bitters In a jar, combine 5 butterscotch candies with 125 ml. of Angostura bitters. Store at room temperature and wait for the candies to dissolve, about 48 hours. Once the candies have dissolved, add 40 ml. (about 1 1/3 oz.) of green Chartreuse and shake to combine.
