One drink that I have always wanted to try is an Old Fashioned, but try as I might, I can’t stomach whiskey. So why should the whiskey drinkers have all the fun?! I whipped one up with some delicious Sailor Jerry Rum and it’s just as enjoyable as its classic whiskey counterpart!
1 orange slice
1 maraschino cherry
1 sugar cube (1 tsp)
2 dashes of angostura bitters
1 tsp of water (or you can do what I do and just let the ice melt a bit)
2oz Sailor Jerry Rum
A fun side note: Call it an accident or cosmic irony, but I made these again the other night, one with rum for myself and one with bourbon for my fiancé. I picked up his glass by mistake and took a big swig.. After scrubbing my tongue with a towel and taking a sip out of MY drink this time, I think I finally got rid of the taste of his bourbon!
In an Old Fashioned glass or tumbler, muddle orange slice, cherry, sugar cube, and bitters.
Add Sailor Jerry Rum, a few ice cubes, and stir.
Serve right away.
