A classic holiday always includes a few things, like classic songs, games, baking cookies, telling stories... and making a good Old Fashioned. Made with BACARDÍ 8 Años rum and garnished with an orange peel, this Old Fashioned will become another favored tradition, right alongside that amazing secret-family-recipe stuffing.
BACARDÍ 8 Años Rum Holiday Old Fashioned
- 2 parts BACARDÍ 8 Años Rum

- Pour in the second half of the rum and 2-3 more ice cubes, continuing to stir.
