The Herman Marshall whiskey brand, made by Dallas Distilleries, is named after the founders of the spirit company, Marshall Louis and Herman Beckley, who met at a Starbucks years ago and noticed their hobby of distilling spirits could turn into a business. They decided to specialize in whiskey and now have a bourbon, a single malt and a rye.
For this cocktail recipe from Austin bar Easy Tiger, the bourbon’s peppery notes are particularly present to balance out the ginger liqueur and the orange bitters. It’s a bold, boozy drink that showcases the best qualities of the Herman Marshall whiskey, a corn-and-barley mixture aged in new white oak barrels.
1 1/2 oz. Herman Marshall bourbon
1 oz. Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur
1 dash orange bitters
Combine ingredients in an ice-filled shaker and stir. Strain into ice-filled Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
