Oaked Rum Old Fashioned
Notes from mixologist Brian Colon: “The oaked rum provides notes of vanilla, molasses, charred oak and raisin but delivers a whiskey-like finish to complement its true origins of an old fashioned. Adding 2 dashes of Angostura bitters to create aroma such as herbs, fruits and spices and complexity to the cocktail to elevate its flavors providing hints of clove, cinnamon and gentian along with other fruits and spices. Adding to the complexity I add 2 dashes of orange bitter to provide sweet and bitter citrus density to this simple but complex drink. Finishing this concoction I add 1/2 oz of simple syrup to bridge everything together and give this cocktail the slight sweetness and smoothness that it needs to create balance and provide the perfect old fashioned.”
2 oz Lancaster Distilleries Oaked Rum
1/2 ounce simple syrup (if making your own boil 1 to 1 sugar and water for about 5 to 10 mins)
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
2 Dashes Orange Bitters
Add all ingredients in mixing glass, add ice and stir for about 20 seconds. Strain over fresh ice or large cube (slow dilution of drink with large cube). Garnish with an orange peel and enjoy!
