The Two Point Rum Old Fashion

     From the list of ingredients that you can choose from that I published yesterday, Here is another idea to try.  This cocktail requires no sweetener, but rather gets its flavor from the natural flavors of the fresh strawberry and fresh pineapple chunks.  Keep the pineapple chunks down to about 1 inch and only 2 or it will be a 3 point cocktail.

     I hope that I have been able to give you some ideas for creating some of your own 2 point cocktails and get you off of the Vodka and Club Soda path of really boring cocktails.  Get out and try some of these fun ideas and then get to the store and find a few fresh fruits and herbs and make some of these 2  Point Cocktails of your own.

The 2 Point Rum Old Fashion

  • 1 1/2 Oz. Zafra 21 Year Old Rum
  • 1 Fresh Strawberry
  • 2 Small Cubes of Fresh Pineapple
  • Fee Bros. Old Fashion Aromatic Bitters
Muddle the Strawberry and the pineapple in a shaker, add ice and the remaining ingredients and shake until chilled.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with an orange zest.
