Cubed Old Fashioned Cocktail

By Jamie Boudreau

The Old Fashioned Cocktail is simple yet multidimensional. Its few ingredients combine to create what some consider the perfect cocktail. You can make old fashioned cocktails with any spirit; rum and tequila both make a wonderful old fashioned. But why not try multiple spirits and multiple bitters for that matter? The Cubed Old Fashioned could just take you to the fourth dimension!

Okay, and I thought I was getting fancy with my Old Fashioned variant, the Judge Walker…

Hey Dinah, your drink would be better classified as an Manhattan variant.  It sounds good though, I’d give that one a try!!

Well, technically yes it is, but once you try it I think you’ll group it with the Old Fashioned. It’s got just a bit less intense mood than a Manhattan. Sort of thing a judge would have after work, don’t you know? ;)

Meanwhile, I add chocolate bitters to the shopping list…

Of course, on the other hand, it IS most certainly old- fashioned in it structure.  I can see what you mean though.  Whatever anyone want’s to call it, a good drink is a good drink.  Cheers!!

Byron, Jamie is using an antique “Napier” jigger. They made a few different styles back in the day. You can currently find one of these on eBay for $49 (Item #360336339583).

Been searching high and low - what kind of rum is Mount Gay? Spiced? It looks spiced. Please advise. This cocktail this looks fantastic.

AaronWalls,

You can find out more about Mount Gay Rum here: http://www.mountgayrum.com/ As far as we know, they do not make a spiced rum. The rum Jamie is using here is Mount Gay Extra Old.

Thank you for watching!
