Introducing Ron Cartavio Black Barrel

     Cartavio has just introduced a new Ron Cartavio Black Barrel Rum.  I was working with it today and found it to have a lot of really good characteristics for mixing as well as a really fine sipping rum.   I was looking for a semi sweet cocktail for an evening on the aft deck watching the sunset and came up with this one.

     The flavors of this cocktail will make your evening flow out in a smooth flowing tide of pleasure.   Makes your evening settle into the seal just like a great Key West sunset.

Old Key West
  • 2 oz. Ron Cartavio Black Barrel Rum
  • 3/4 oz. Agave Nectar
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Place all ingredients into a shaker half filled with ice and shake until chilled.  Strain into an “old fashion glass” filled with ice.  Garnish with a lime wedge.
