Build in an old fashioned glass, add ice, stir to mix and chill, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Fridays ago, I spotted a drink published in Imbibe Magazine in 2020 on Kindred Cocktails called the Social Animal. The recipe was crafted by Tony Roehr at Raised by Wolves in San Diego, and I passed over the drink when it first came out for I had yet to add a walnut liqueur to my liquor shelves. This dessert-inspired Old Fashioned began with a lemon and banana bread bouquet. Next, a caramel-like sip ushered in Bourbon, walnut, banana, and clove flavors on the swallow.
