Servings 1


  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1 oz pecan or praline liqueur I used Rivulet liqueur
  • 3 dashes chocolate bitters
  • Garnish: praline toasted spiced pecan, or cocktail cherry.


  • Combine ingredients in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir until well-chilled and strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass. Garnish with a praline if you have it, toasted pecans and a cherry if you don’t.


Batching instructions for 6 to 8 cocktails
In an empty 750 mL bottle add the following
2 cups bourbon
1 cup pecan or praline liqueur
16-24 dashes of chocolate bitters (you’ll need to do a taste test)
¼ to ½ cup water to dilute
Add the 2 cups of bourbon to the bottle. Next, add the dashes of bitters to your praline/pecan liqueur and add it to your bottle. Finish by adding the water to dilute it and then shake the bottle a bit to combine. Store in the fridge until ready to consume. If you love your cocktails super chilled, place in the freezer about an hour before you serve it. Serve neat in a coupe or martini glass with a garnish.
