Never again despair! A delicious cocktail is moments away. Just muddle one slice of Old Fashioned Orange with 3-4 dashes of bitters and a cocktail cherry in a rocks glass. Add 2 oz. whisky and ice, then stir and enjoy!
If you're not a cocktail guy, these candied orange slices are also a great topping (underneathing?) for an upsidedown cake, or a beautiful addition to an almond tart or a panna cotta. Any leftover syrup is great mixed with seltzer water.
Camilla Wynne, Preservation Society founder, has been a pastry professional for a decade. After graduating from pastry school she cut her teeth in some of Montreal's best restaurants, including Les Chevres, Anise, and Laloux, all the while running the pastry half of Backroom Records & Pastries, and touring and recording with rock band Sunset Rubdown. When the band broke up she decided to concentrate on producing her own line of preserves, which had already garnered a following.
Not content to produce garden-variety jams and pickles, Camilla instead favours products that tell a story or illicit a memory and are often, though not intentionally, inspired by cocktails.
Oranges, sugar, water, Aperol, lemon juice, bitters.
