freehand old fashioned

2 oz Plantation Pineapple Rum
1/4 oz Demerara Syrup
1 bsp Galliano Ristretto Coffee Liqueur
1 dash Angostura Bitters
1 dash Regan's Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Wednesdays, I was in an Old Fashioned sort of mood, and I recalled spotting an interesting recipe in the Hawthorne's bar bible. That drink was the Freehand Old Fashioned that bartender Jason Kilgore crafted circa 2017 in honor of the Freehand Hotel in Miami which is the home of the award-winning Broken Shaker bar. Moreover, the recipe was featured in a 2018 article about the rise of the Rum Old Fashioned. Once prepared, the Freehand Old Fashioned met the nose with an orange and pineapple bouquet. Next, a roast-filled sip summoned a pineapple, coffee, allspice, and clove swallow.
