Mixologist Creates 'Stronger' Cocktail for Kelly Clarkson

February 10, 2013

Kelly Clarkson's song "Stronger" seems to inspire more than just a positive message for young girls. Mixologist, Paul McGee, of Bub City bar in Chicago, created a cocktail inspired by Clarkson's hit song. 

"It was kind of tongue in cheek, but the Old Fashioned is usually a nice introduction to drinking boozy cocktails or drinking bourbon straight," McGee said. "It is definitely a 'strong' drink with a subtle sweetness and lingering finish and usually wins over people who would never drink such a bold drink. It most likely won't kill you, but might also make you appreciate something new. I can totally see Kelly Clarkson drinking one of these! 

"What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger" Old Fashioned

Ingredients: 
2.5 oz Any 100 proof bourbon or rye will do
.25 oz Demerara Syrup (2 parts unrefined cane sugar to 1 part water until granules dissolve)
4 dashes angostura bitters
1 orange peel and cherry
