Celebuzz Cocktail Hour: The Drizly Rum Old Fashioned

Drizly has paired cocktails with their respective Zodiac signs and have matched the prominent personality traits of each zodiac sign with the spirits and flavors in the drinks.

With June 21 – July 22 being the Cancer sign, we’re bringing you the perfect cocktail for all you Cancer’s out there — the Rum Old Fashioned.

“Aged rum has a lot of flavor complexity, making it a worthy substitute for whiskey in one of the most classic cocktail recipes; the Old Fashioned. Look for rum with 12 plus years of aging to ensure a mature flavor that won’t disappoint.” – Trisha Antonsen, chief cocktail officer at Drizly.com

2 ounces aged rum
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
1 sugar cube

Place the sugar cube at the bottom of a rocks glass and add 2 dashes of bitters. Splash some rum into the glass to help muddle the sugar and bitters together. Add 2 large ice cubes and remaining rum. Stir with a bar spoon and garnish with an orange peel spritzed over the top then dropped into the drink.

Please remember to drink responsibly, and do not drink and drive!
