crown chelsea

1 1/2 oz Bourbon (Old Forester 100°)
1/2 oz Aged Guyanese Rum (El Dorado 12 Year)
1 tsp Orgeat
1 tsp St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram (1/2 tsp Hamilton's Allspice Dram + 1/2 tsp simple syrup)
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Build in an double old fashioned glass, add a large ice cube, and stir. Garnish with orange oil from a twist and with another orange peel spiked with cloves.
Two Sundays ago, I selected a recipe called the Crown Chelsea that I had found on Punch Drinks. The drink was created by Meaghan Dorman at the Raines Law Room in New York City, and this Tiki-esque take on an Old Fashioned became her shift drink as she cleaned up the bar at closing. In the glass, the Crown Chelsea shared an orange, clove, and allspice aroma. Next, a creamy and caramel sip developed into Bourbon, dark rum, nutty, and allspice flavors on the swallow.
