Named in honor of the wife of Andrew Jackson (whose nickname was Old Hickory), this punched-up Old Fashioned developed by mixologist Andrew Bohrer of Seattle's Mistral Kitchen gets a rich kick from rye simple syrup and hickory smoke. Bohrer serves it over a single large ice cube which he carves barside to resemble a diamond; if you're not an adept ice-carver, any large-sized ice will do.
- 2 oz. bourbon
- 1⁄4 oz. rye whiskey simple syrup
