1878 Rum Cocktail

1878 Rum Cocktail SAM_1686The recipe I am presenting here is based loosely upon an old cocktail recipe I found in Leo Engels 1878 book, American and Other Drinks. In his book, Leo simply calls the recipe a Rum Cocktail.

1878 Rum Cocktail

2 oz Aged Rum
2 dashes of Orange Curacao
1 dashes of Bitters (Angostura Cocktail bitters)
2 dashes of plain syrup
strip of orange peel

Fill a metal shaker 1/3 full of ice
Add 2 dashes of Orange Curacao and Sugar followed by a dash of Angostura Bitters
Add Aged Rum
Shake and strain into a suitable glass
Add ice and a strip of orange peel

Enjoy Responsibly!
