This is a blog that will take you through the Rum lifestyles of a fine group of people that enjoy the fun and pleasure of fine rums. We will travel to distilleries, partys, and Rum Events to bring you the Rumstyles of all those we come in contact with.
A couple of weeks ago, a young lady stopped by the Rum Bar and asked for an Old Fashion. This setme to thinking of an idea to recreate the cocktail my way. I thought to my self why not put a new spin on this venerable ole cocktail and make it with rum. It dawned on me to base the "new" old fashion around Mount Gay XO Rum. This is a rum that is bold and dark rum that is generally regarded as a sipping rum, but it has qualities that lend it to being a great ultra premium cocktail rum as well.
Bahama Bob's XOld Fashion
1 1/2 oz. Mount Gay XO
1 oz. Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
3/4 oz. Agave Nectar
2 Maraschino Cherries
1 Dash of Bitters
Muddle the agave nectar, Cherries, and the bitters in a rocks glass. Pour the muddle into a shaker filled with ice and add the liquors. Shake until chilled and strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Float an orange zest on the surface and serve.
This is a great evening cocktail that I hope you will enjoy. ;o)
