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
Add the sugar, water and bitters with a barspoon into an Old Fashioned glass.
Add half of the rum and 2-3 large ice cubes, stirring repeatedly.
Pour in the second half of the rum and 2-3 more ice cubes, continuing to stir.
Express the oil of an orange peel over the drink, and drop in the peel.
