Old Fashioned with Allulose

Yeah, we KNOW cocktails aren't exactly health foods, but you can certainly make them healthier when you're using simple syrup made with KNOW Better Sweetener. This twist on a traditional Old Fashioned has all the flavor of the classic drink, but with a little less sugar. 

Makes 1 cocktail


KNOW Better Simple Syrup
1/4 cup KNOW Better Sweetener
3 tablespoons warm water

3 ounces bourbon
1 tablespoon KNOW Better Simple Syrup (above)
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 dash orange bitters
1 (2-inch) lemon peel
1 (2-inch) orange peel
Brandied cherry, for garnish (optional)


To make the simple syrup: In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients until dissolved. If needed, microwave the the mixture for 10 to 20 seconds to help dissolve the sugar. Let cool completely.

To make the cocktail: In a rocks glass, combine the bourbon, simple syrup, and bitters. Twist the lemon and orange peels over the glass to express their oils and add to the drink. Fill the glass with ice and stir vigorously with a bar spoon until chilled. Add a cherry for garnish, if desired. Serve immediately.
