An Old Fashioned Good Time

Come into Searsucker Las Vegas for a brand new Happy Hour menu!

Las Vegas Happy Hour - Searsucker

Tired of the stresses of modern day life?

Spending your whole life in front of a screen, both at work and at home?

At Searsucker, we’ve sworn off the smart phones, smart glasses, and smart-everything else for a while, and we’re kicking it old school.

Join us here for an Old Fashioned good time, with 4 new (old) cocktails on our Happy Hour Menu.

 

Coming in hot is the Hot n’ Bothered Old Fashioned, with Slaughter House American whiskey, Oaxacan Old Fashioned syrup, and Hellfire bitters. Smooth and spicy, this kickin’ cocktail is garnished with a jalapeno and a marasca cherry.

Smokin’ it up next is our Smoked Old Fashioned, with W.L Weller 12 year bourbon, barrel smoked maple syrup, cedar smoke, and aromatic and orange bitters. Don’t worry, this one won’t leave any fumes behind, all the smokiness is in the flavor.

Next, as a splendid mix of childhood and adulthood, is our PB&J Old Fashioned. With muddled strawberry, peanut-infused Elijah Craig Small Batch bourbon, Fassionola syrup, and strawberry/orange bitters, this one is a sweet and savory ride. And as the proverbial cherry on top, this one is garnished with an Uncrustable wedge!

We didn’t forget our roots, so of course, there’s a Classic Old Fashioned on the list. With Russel’s Reserve 10yr bourbon, brown sugar, orange oil, cinnamon, cherry, and aromatic and orange bitters, this one is classically garnished with a marasca cherry and an orange peel.

 

We asked the man behind the glass, Constantin Alexander, a few questions about the new menu.

 

  1. How did the Old Fashioned come about and what have you done to the Searsucker ones to modernize it?  
    It was created in the early 1800’s and became popular in the mid 1800’s.  The IBA recipe for an Old Fashioned includes a your base spirit, a muddled cherry, orange and sugar cube with a citrus rind and a splash of water.  The Modern old fashioned can be accomplished a variety of ways.  We have done so by making a homemade syrup with marasca cherry, cinnamon, orange peel and demerara sugar and adding aromatic and orange bitters.
  2. Which drink on the new Happy Hour menu would you recommend to someone who doesn’t normally drink an Old Fashioned?  
    They should start with the classic Old Fashioned and see how their night goes on.  They’ll probably like it and try all varieties.  Remember to tip your Lyft driver.
  3. Which drink on the new Happy Hour menu is your favorite?  
    The smoked Old Fashioned with barrel smoked maple syrup.
  4. When did you have your first Old Fashioned? Was it love at first sip?  
    My first Old Fashioned was not love at first sight as back in the day when I was bartending, muddling all of the ingredients was a way to slow down the bar and the Old Fashioned was considered the big pain in the neck drink to make.  Oh, how far we have come with our current 10 minute concoctions.  That Old Fashioned seems like a breeze now.  Seriously though, I didn’t really like the classic recipe.  I am a much bigger fan of modern Old Fashioned cocktails.
