Recipe: Rum Old Fashioned
The Old Fashioned is a very simple cocktail. It’s simply made by muddling sugar and bitters in a rocks glass, then adding a decent whisky – or other dark spirit – and a citrus twist. The simplicity of the drink allows the spirit to shine through and doesn’t hide the alcohol. Simple!
Spike’s Reserve 10 Year Ord River Rum 10 Year is perfect for an Old Fashioned. A premium quality, Australian craft spirit with characters of chocolate, vanilla and spices. Aged in barrels for 10 years, it has a deep, golden colour and a rich, oaky finish.
