Spiced Fashioned

Spiced Fashioned
Ingredients
  • 2 oz
    Kōloa Spice Rum
  • .5 oz
    Demerara Syrup (1:1, turbinado sugar: water)
  • 3
    Dashes Orange Bitters

Instructions: Mix Demerara syrup and orange bitters in old fashioned glass. Add a dash of plain water. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add Kōloa Spice Rum.

Garnish: Orange slice and a cocktail cherry.

Method:

Simply measure and pour all ingredients over a large ice cube in a small rocks glass. Go easy on the bitters – a little goes a long way when adding depth to your Spiced Fashioned.

TRICKS OF THE TRADE: TO FRUIT OR NOT TO FRUIT

The addition of orange and cherry to the original cocktail equation came about during prohibition – presumably as a way of masking the strong aroma of whiskey. This tradition has become a staple in Old Fashioned cocktails around the world. However, if you are a purist – feel free to skip the fruit.

TRICKS OF THE TRADE: LARGE VS. SMALL ICE CUBES

Ice cube molds are all the rage – using one large cubed or circular ice cube allows the cocktail to slowly open up with the slightest addition of water from the melting ice. This makes for an enjoyable cocktail to be sipped and not rushed.
