Cooking Instructions for Apple Pie Infused Sous Vide Bourbon Old Fashioned

For the Apple Pie Bourbon

Preheat a water bath to 140°F (60°C).

Lightly scrub the outside of the apples then core and coarsely chop them. Combine the apple pieces with the remaining ingredients in a sous vide bag or Mason jar then seal and place in the water bath. Heat the infusion for 1 to 3 hours.

Prepare an ice bath with 1/2 ice and 1/2 water. Remove the bag or Mason jar from the water bath and place in the ice bath for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the bourbon and store in a sealed container, reserving the apple pieces to use as garnishes. 

For the Old Fashioned (per drink)

Add the simple syrup and bitters to an Old Fashioned glass then top with a few ice cubes. Stir several times to combine. Add the Apple Pie Bourbon and stir until combined, about 15 times, then serve.
