A New Old Fashion for the Summer

     Time for a very dry cocktail created with one of my favorite young rums.   Richland Rum is an honest rum that is dry by nature, yet has a really full flavor, making it perfect for a dry yet flavorful evening cocktail.   For me anyway, I don’t find the sweet cocktails that refreshing, as we move toward the warmer months the dry cocktail is more to my liking.  I like dry cocktails that linger on the palate long after it has been finished.

     I think you will find this kin to an old fashion to be an enjoyable evening cocktail as you sit of the aft deck or the patio watching the sunset.

Good Ole Days

  • 1 ½ oz. Richland Rum
  • 1 ½ oz. Dry Vermouth
  • ½ oz. Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
  • 2 Dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • 1 Dash Fee Bros. Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters

Place all ingredients into a shaker filled 2/3  with ice.  Shake until thoroughly chilled.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon or orange zest.
