What's this?

Created in New York in the early 1900s, the iconic Old Fashioned is deemed “the original cocktail.” But even the most established classics can do with a refresh every now and then. Try it with Bacardí 8 Años rum instead of whiskey and call yourself a visionary.


  • 2 parts Bacardí 8 Años rum
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 splash Water
  • Garnish: 1 None Orange peel


  1. Add the sugar, water and bitters with a barspoon into an Old Fashioned glass.

  2. Add half of the rum and 2-3 large ice cubes, stirring repeatedly.

  3. Pour in the second half of the rum and 2-3 more ice cubes, continuing to stir.

  4. Express the oil of an orange peel over the drink, and drop in the peel.
