Cocktail Hour: Treacle

Posted by Arctic Wolf on July 23, 2016

Treacle SAM_2599I found this recipe upon the Bacardi Company website in their cocktails section. It is apparently a variation of the classic Old Fashioned Cocktail created by Dick Bradsell. Dick manages several bars in London (England) including: The Colony Room, Zanzibar and The Pharmacy. I have modified Dick’s recipe using sugar syrup instead of caster sugar, but otherwise his mixed drink is unchanged.


2 oz Bacardi Gran Reserva 8 Años Rum
1 tsp Sugar Syrup
1 oz Fresh Apple Juice
2 dashes of Orange Bitters
ice cubes
Orange Peel Garnish (optional)

Place the sugar and the bitters into a rocks glass
Add 2 ice cubes and one half of Bacardi 8 Años rum
Give it a stir
Add some more ice cubes and a second part of rum.
Pour in the apple juice
Garnish with a strip of orange peel (optional)
Stir gently and serve.

Enjoy Responsibly!

Note: Tomorrow I revisit the Bacardi Gran Reserva 8 Años Rum and provide a new review based upon a more current bottling.
