espresso old fashionedFairgrounds founder Michael Schultz created this Espresso Old Fashioned as an homage to his grandfather. (Note the small amount of bitters means the drink is not 100% alcohol-free).

1 shot espresso
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
5 dashes walnut bitters
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: rocks
Garnish: orange peel

Combine all of the ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake to chill. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice and garnish. If you don’t have an espresso machine, you can swap out the espresso for a strong cold-brew coffee.
