The Story Behind The Curaçao Rum Runner
With so many great new rums coming into the U.S. market, I’ve had a lot of fun lately playing around with flavors and coming up with rum cocktails.
I always head straight to the classic Old Fashioned cocktail when I want to showcase the complexity of a spirit in its rawest state. In this case it turned out great but I wanted to add a little more depth so I grabbed some Dry Curaçao and it balanced the cocktail perfectly. I also added some orange bitters because I think they pair excellently with the Curaçao and añejo rum.
Ingredients In The Curaçao Rum Runner:
- 1.5 ounces añejo rum
- 1 ounce Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao
- 2 dashes orange bitters
