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

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
