The Herby Old Orleans

Mixed by Shannon E. Thomas on March 9, 2018


To celebrate Hans completing yet another trip around the sun, we created a simple concoction that was one third sazerac, one third old fashioned, and one third herby goodness. This alcohol-heavy mixture made breaking the t-rex piñata all the more fun (and challenging).


  • 1 part herby simple syrup
  • 3 parts rye whiskey
  • 1 splash of peychaud’s bitters
  • rosemary and thyme for garnish


To make the herby simple syrup, mix 400 ml sugar with 600 ml water in a large saucepan. Add sage, rosemary, and thyme. Boil for 10 – 15 minutes. Inhale deeply. Remove from the heat and let cool before straining into a bottle for serving.

Measure and pour the whiskey and simple syrup into a glass with ice. Add the splash of bitters and stir. Garnish with the rosemary and thyme and drink up!
