Love the idea of a seasonal New Fashioned! Old Fashioneds are top on my tipple list, and the New Fashioned takes it to new heights!

Dickie Brennan’s Bourbon House has been serving the New Fashioned since 2002

Before opening Bourbon House, key members of the Dickie Brennan team ventured to Kentucky to do some hands-on research. While there they talked with Fred Noe, great-grandson of Jim Beam about classic bourbon cocktails and ideas to update them. One idea was using different fruits. The group thought “Louisiana and the Gulf Coast has some of the best produce in the country, why not incorporate that into a classic bourbon cocktail?” Thus the New Fashioned was born. Today, bartenders at Bourbon House use seasonal fruit – peaches, strawberries and blueberries to create this delicious cocktail.

Key Ingredients: Bourbon, bitters, sugar, seasonal fruit



2oz. macerated peaches (fruit marinated in its’ own juices with a touch of sugar overnight – blueberries, raspberries or strawberries may be substituted)

2oz. Knob Creek bourbon

5 shakes Peychaud’s bitters
