Two Fridays ago, I turned to Robert Simonson's The Old-Fashioned book that I purchased for this past Mixology Monday and made the Haunted House. The Haunted House was the recipe that initially caught my eye for the event, but with a liqueur in addition to the syrup, it felt more like a cocktail proper and less like an Old Fashioned. The book attributed the recipe to Jeremy Oertel of Donna in Brooklyn back in 2011. Jeremy dubbed his drink in tribute to Donna's owner's band of the same name.
