The Old Fashioned is typically made with brandy or whiskey, but Cruzan Rum took over the recipe to celebrate National Rum Day, August 16.
2 oz. Cruzan Single Barrel Rum
1/2 oz. Simple syrup
3 dashes Bitters
Coconut water ice cubes
To make coconut water ice cubes, strain the pulp out of a can of coconut water, then pour the water in an ice-cube tray and freeze it.
For garnish and flavor, cut a swath of orange peel and press it to the bottom of a rocks glass. Add the rum, syrup and bitter, then the coconut ice cubes. Stir the mixture.
