old fashioned cocktail with orange leaf garnish

Oleo Old Fashioned

Sip on this old fashioned with oleo saccharum and Amaro Nonino – celebrating all things orange and citrus. Make sure to use a high proof rye to stand up to the aggressive flavors in the amaro and oleo. You’ll be glad you did, and you won’t need more than one. Although you might want more than one.
