Yester Year

“There’s a great John Coltrane line about autumn: ‘Thru the trees comes autumn with her serenade. Melodies the sweetest music ever played.’ Riffing off that thought, our team worked to use ingredients and combinations that would remind people of that kind of autumn mood. That means ‘roast’ flavored characteristics like nuts, savory herbs and market flavors that mix well with the spiciness of rye and the sweeter bourbon profiles. We fused some recognizable combinations, like orange and chocolate, into it to provide comfort and familiarity … which is what autumn is all about.” – Eric Stenta, vice president, Food and Beverage Operations.

2 oz                  Pikesville Rye Whiskey
1 bar spoon    Orange marmalade
2 dashes         Aztec Chocolate Bitters

Combine all ingredients in mixing glass with ice. Stir for 30 seconds. Strain over fresh ice into an Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with orange peel.
