Maple Rum Old Fashioned

This Maple Rum Old Fashioned Cocktail recipe is a simple variation to the original Old Fashioned Cocktail that uses your favourite rum and maple syrup to give you an easy sipping drink that is perfect in the evening.

The classic Old Fashioned is the traditional cocktail, but it offers endless opportunities for personalization for the experimental connoisseur. In “The Bartenders Guide” from 1862, Jerry Thomas shows the recipe containing a spirit, sugar, water and bitters. He also included a Gin Old Fashioned made with Holland Gin. This template allows us to build different variations according to personal taste and preference. There are many Old Fashioneds, and the Rum Old Fashioned is one of them. So it becomes natural to modify them using different sweeteners. And in marches Maple Syrup. With beautiful woody and vanilla tones. Maple Syrup and Rum match beautifully in structure and balancing highlights, elevating a classic to new heights.
