How to make:

STIR rum with three ice cubes in a glass. ADD sugar, falernum, bitters and two more ice cubes. STIR lots more and add more ice.


Orange zest twist


The flavour of the overproof rum greatly adds to the character of this Old Fashioned. There are many rum Old Fashioned riffs but this is the recipe that made this cocktail both special and famous.
