It’s National Rum Day in the US today (yes, there is such a thing!), so we thought what better excuse is there to drink cocktails than this on a Tuesday night?!
So, ladies and gentleman, we give you Captain’s Orders to try this Spice Rum Old Fashioned (see what we did there?!). Did you know the ‘Old Fashioned’ cocktail was traditionally made with rye whisky or bourbon but over the years has become synonymous with the heavy bottomed tumbler that the Old Fashioned was traditionally served in?
The thing we like best about the Captain’s Orders is it’s super simple to make with ingredients commonly found in your home bar. So why not give it a try tonight?
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
12.5ml Sugar Syrup
50ml Queen Cleo Spiced Rum
1. Add the following ingredients to ice in a stir glass (or make straight into your rocks glass)
2. Stir and Strain into your chilled glass
3. Pinch orange peel to release orange oils
