BACARDÍ 8 AÑOS 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.


2 parts BACARDÍ 8 Años Rum
2 dashes Angostura® bitters
1 splash water
1 - 2 tsp Sugar
1 Orange peel


In an old-fashioned glass, combine the sugar, water and Angostura Bitters® with a bar spoon. Next, add half the Bacardí 8 Años 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.
