Bulleit Bold Fashioned cocktail recipe

Bulleit brand ambassador Jenna Ba shared a very special cocktail recipe (involving Guinness) which you all went crazy for – and we have it for you right here. You know what they say… Ask and you shall receive!

Beer and bourbon – a classic combination. While a Boilermaker has probably sprung to mind, if you’re after something a little shorter, we’ve got just the thing. Behold, the Bold Fashioned! The wonderful Jenna Ba kindly shared her recipe for a special Guinness syrup which she uses to amp up the classic cocktail, because so many of you asked for it *so* nicely back our first live tasting in March 

We can't wait to see the cocktails that you're going to whip up with this – make sure you tag us in your pictures!

What you’ll need for the Guinness syrup:

  • 1 cup Guinness
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt and cinnamon

Add all the ingredients to a pan, and simmer until the liquid has reduced by half. Pair with 45ml of Bulleit 10 Year Old (we recommend starting with around 10ml, depending on how sweet you like it) and a few dashes of bitters, and enjoy your Bold Fashioned! 

If videos are more your thing, you can even find Jenna talking you through it here on Instagram.

Happy sipping, everyone!
