This is a modern day spin on ‘The Old Fashioned’ using BACARDÍ 8 AÑOS rum and fresh pressed apple juice. It was created by Dick Bradsell, who runs bars at legendary London nightspots, like The Colony Room, Zanzibar and The Pharmacy.
50 ml BACARDÍ 8 Años Rum
1/2 tsp fine white sugar (caster sugar)
25 ml freshly pressed apple juice
2 dashes Orange Bitters
Place the sugar and the bitters into a glass. Then use a bar spoon of BACARDÍ 8 AÑOS rum to help dissolve the sugar. Next, add 2 ice cubes and one part of BACARDÍ 8 AÑOS rum. Give it a stir and then add some more ice cubes and a second part of rum. Finally, pour in the apple juice, gently stir and serve.
