BACARDÍ 8 Anos Rum Old Fashioned

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 whisky and call yourself a visionary.


INGREDIENT:

50 ml BACARDÍ 8 AÑOS Rum
2 Dashes Angostura® bitters
1 Splash Water
1-2 tsp Sugar
1 Orange peel


METHOD:

In an old-fashioned glass, combine the sugar, water and angostura bitters® with a bar spoon. Next, add half the BACARDÍ 8 Años Rum along with 2-3 large ice cubes, stirring repeatedly. Pour in the second half of the rum and 2-3 more ice cubes, continuing to stir. Cut a piece of orange peel (about 5 cm long); express the orange peel over the drink, releasing the citrus oils; drop the peel into the drink to finish.
