The Old Fashioned is traditionally made with Bourbon, but in the Caribbean, you'll often find it made with Rum.
Here we present our recipe for an Aztec Old Fashioned made both ways. The rich Aztec Chocolate bitters marry beautifully with the Orange Bitters. In addition to the orange peel, you can top with some shaved chocolate.
2 oz Bourbon or Rum.
5 dashes Aztec Chocolate Bitters
3 dashes Orange Bitters
Dash Simple Syrup (optional)
Orange peel twist
Shaved chocolate (optional)
Add ice to a mixing pitcher or large glass
Add all ingredients except the orange peel
Place a large ice cube into an Old Fashioned glass
Use a cocktail strainer to pour the drink into the glass
Add the orange peel
Shave the chocolate over the glass if using.
Use your favorite Bourbon or Rum in this recipe, we prefer:
The use of large ice cubes made specially for cocktail drinks means less water melt into your drink.
