Looking for the perfect summer cocktail? Look no further than a special reinvention of the classic Old Fashioned, now available at the Belvedere Inn.
Made with a combination of Macallan 15 Fine Oak Single Malt Scotch Whiskey, Brugal 1888 Rum, agave nectar, a dash of orange bitters, an orange twist for a hint of citrus oil on top, and, of course, a signature Macallan ice sphere.
The scotch lends a touch of smokiness to the drink, which is balanced beautifully by the dark sweetness of the rum. Agave nectar is better than a traditional sugar or brown sugar cube for adding sweetness.
Finally, the orange flavor is included in lieu of a cherry, as the original Old Fashioned includes this citrus aspect.
“This cocktail is great for summer,” said Mixologist Chris Chamberlain. “It is so easy to drink.”
Sweet without being cloying, this is the perfect liquid accompaniment to a warm summer evening downtown at the Belvedere.
