2 oz Elijah Craig Bourbon (Angel's Envy)
1/2 oz Pineapple Syrup
1 dash Angostura Bitters
1 dash Fee's Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with a cherry (Woodford Reserve).
Two Tuesdays prior, I returned to the Hawthorne bar bible and spied the Georgetown created by bartender Katie Emmerson (now Okane) sometime between when she opened the Hawthorne in 2011 and when she left for the West Coast in 2014. The recipe book offered up the subtitle, "A nod to the past, a taste of the present for the Old-Fashioned lover." In the glass, the combination proffered a cherry and Bourbon bouquet to the nose. Next, pineapple on the sip led into Bourbon, pineapple, cinnamon, and clove flavors on the swallow. Overall, the combination was rather classic for it reminded me of the Linstead from William Boothby's 1934 book.
