Viejo Fashioned


Brugal rum has been made in the Dominican Republic since 1888, and the dry, cask-aged spirit is well-suited to a wide range of cocktails not often associated with rum. “A cocktail is a chain, it’s only as good as its weakest ingredient,” says Nicolas Villalon, Brugal rum’s brand ambassador for Canada. Best to choose a premium mix, then. This twist on an Old Fashioned uses Brugal Añejo, a blend of rums aged from two to five years in white American oak casks. The resulting flavours—woodiness, charred caramel, and a bit of spice—translate well to this traditionally whisky-based drink.


1 ½ oz. Brugal Añejo
½ oz. simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters


01. Stir the ingredients with ice in an Old Fashioned glass.
02. Garnish with an orange twist.
