How to make it:

  11. Taste the cocktail. Is it perfect? Stop stirring. Is it too watery? Add more rum. Is the taste of alcohol too strong? Keep stirring.
  12. When you think it’s perfect then strain the cocktail into your rocks glass.
  13. If you got an ice ball then add it to the rocks glass.
  14. Peel you a long orange zest.

My advice on how to twist the cocktail:

  • Rum Old Fashioned is already a twist but anyway here is my advice.
  • The easy one is to just make the original old fashioned. Add Bourbon instead of Rum.
  • A more interesting twist could be to add scotch or rye whisky instead.
  • Nowadays you can actually make lots of different old fashions. Tequila, gin, cachaca, snaps etc. etc. I recommend you make sure your chosen spirit is high quality and full of taste. That makes the result way better.

Share my Rum Old Fashioned cocktail and let’s make the world old fashioned.

Cheers! ??????
