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.


INGREDIENT:

2 PARTS 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 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.
