Cocktail Recipe: Clearance Clarence

Cheers to Bourbon Heritage Month this year with the Clearance Clarence by the team at Lockbox.

Try it at home or enjoy with us all September long!


  • 2 oz Milk Clarified Old Forester 86
  • ½ oz Lemon juice
  • ¾ oz Vanilla syrup
  • Orange oil, spritzed
  • Aromatic bitters, spritzed

To clarify the Bourbon: Pour one liter of Bourbon into a container holding 250 milliliters of whole milk. Stir gently and let the mixture rest for three minutes. Curds will form. Let the mixture rest for at least three hours and use a coffee filter(s) to strain off the curds. Bottle and label the clarified Bourbon.

Method: Combine all ingredients. Shake well with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass. Once finished, garnish with a couple spritzes of orange oil and aromatic bitters.

Tools you’ll need: Shaker and Strainer (or perforated spoon), Nick & Nora glass for serving
