From Whiskey to Rum, Very Good and Very Different

     Searching through some old whiskey cocktail recipes, I ran across this one that was an update of the venerable old Manhattan.   Called a Saratoga, I found the idea perfect for a rum conversion.  It has a sweet and spicy flavor that sparks the palate and leaves you with a flavorful finish.  Give this one a try, I think that you will really enjoy it.

Ron Saratoga

  • 1 oz. Cognac
  • 1 oz. Zafra Rum
  • 1 oz. Sweet Vermouth
  • 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters

Put all the ingredients in an ice-filled shaker and shake until well chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish as desired.
