“The cocktail menu at Bohanan’s includes a short list of drinks the bar staff comes up with based on ingredients that suit the season. Last year we did cognac old fashioneds with pumpkin spice bitters, and they just flew off the shelf, so I started thinking about what else I could do with pumpkin spice bitters. I was playing around with different ingredients, trying to come up with some new fall drinks, when a guest jokingly said over the bar, ‘Why don’t you just make a cosmo?’ And I thought, Why not? Cosmos have cranberry, which is a great fall flavor. From there I made a cinnamon-infused simple syrup with demerara sugar—which is a richer, earthier brown sugar than the kind you use for baking. The drink still needed something sweet but lively to round it out, and orange juice just happened to fit perfectly. The name is a nod to Tito’s vodka, which is made in Austin. I can just imagine the people there sitting around on a fall day drinking this cocktail.”
