Here’s a quick rundown of the most delicious food we ate and interesting places we went during this past year.
The Old Fashioned Cuba Libre is the result of a tawdry little affair between a classic Cuba Libre and a much younger mid-century Old Fashioned. Like all good affairs this one has some nice muddling, a little rum, and a touch of Mexican Coke thrown in for good times.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: n/a
Servings: 1 cocktail
In a cocktail shaker squeeze the juice of one lime wedge, tossing the lime in after juicing. Pour in the rum, Cointreau, and a dash of Cherry Bark Bitters.
Muddle everything together, add some ice, and stir until everything is chilled.
Strain the cocktail into a large old fashioned glass with a big ice cube and top everything off with some Mexican Coke, about 4 ounces.
Give it a good stir and garnish with a slice of lime and a nice cherry on top.
