Mixologist: Rum Old Fashioned

It isn’t that we dislike the traditional old fashioned—in fact, come winter, we’ll be back on the whisky wagon—but there’s no reason not to change it up now and again. Rum is a versatile spirit, and light amber rum like Brugal and make a cocktail swing sweet or dry. For a sweeter version of this cocktail, use orange bitters instead of Angostura and an orange twist or maraschino cherry as a garnish.


1 cube sugar
2 or 3 dashes Angostura bitters
Twist lemon peel
2 or 3 ice cubes
2 oz. Brugal añejo


Place the sugar cube in an old-fashioned glass and wet with bitters. Add lemon peel, ice cubes, and rum. Stir.
