THE OLD PHOSHIONED TIRAMISU OVERNIGHT OATS

This cocktail is an homage to my Vietnamese roots and the “original” cocktail, the Old Fashioned. For optional added fun, use a lime ice cube to create a transitional cocktail: A cocktail which changes flavor as the ice cube melts. It’s mostly passive effort resulting in a cocktail which has yet to not enthusiastically impress any one who loves a traditional old fashioned.

Directions for the Phở infused rye:

Ingredients:
-Old Man Que Huong Pho Bac Spice
-Seasoning (#IYKYK)
-Rye Whiskey (I like Old Overholt when I’m feeling #niftythrifty and Rittenhouse otherwise)

Special Equipment:
-Mortar and pestle (or spice grinder)
-Coffee filter
-Silicone ice cube trays for large cubes or spheres
-Separate the star anise and cinnamon sticks from the spice mix for later use.
-Crush spices in a mortar and pestle or grind them in a spice grinder. You want coarse, large pieces and not a fine grind.
-Place crushed spices in the bag that comes with the spice mix and cinch inside a sealable glass jar (like a mason jar) and pour rye on top. Seal the jar and shake well. Let this mixture steep for 4 days, shaking daily. On day 5, break up the cinnamon stick and crush the star anise and add it to the mixture. After 12 days total steeping, remove the spice bag to decant into your final bottle or jar. Optional: strain again through a coffee filter into your final bottle or jar.

Let it sit overnight in the fridge.

Next day: top it off with plain yogurt sweetened with honey then add cocoa powder dust on top.

Directions for the transitional lime ice cubes:

Ingredients:
-Fresh lime juice
-Water

Pour a 1:4 ratio of fresh lime juice and water into an ice cube tray of your preference (I prefer the big cube or the sphere) and freeze. If you want that extra touch, you can put a star anise into each compartment of the ice cube tray.

 

The Old Phoshioned cocktail:

-Add the sugar and bitters into a mixing glass, then add the water, and stir until the sugar is nearly dissolved*
-Fill the mixing glass with ice, add the infused rye, and stir until well-chilled.
-Add the sugar and bitters into a mixing glass, then add the water, and stir until the sugar is nearly dissolved.
-Fill the mixing glass with ice, add the infused, and stir until well-chilled.
-Strain into a rocks glass over one large lime ice cube.
-Express the oil of an orange twist over the glass, then drop into the glass to garnish. Float a star anise on the lime ice cube (unless included in the ice cube). *When I’m feeling lazy I use demerara simple syrup or agave syrup instead.

TIRAMISU OVERNIGHT OATS

I love this recipe because it’s a creative way to get everyone eat more oatmeal and also a very convenient on the go meal. I make this at least once per week.
