Old Fashioned


Give the Old fashioned a little twist with some dark rum. It goes perfectly with the zesty orange to make a deeply-flavoured short cocktail.



1 part               BTD Batavia Arrack
2 dashes          BTD Classic Bitters
1 splash           Water
1 teaspoon      Sugar
                      Orange peel to garnish




  • Add the sugar and Classic Bitters to a rocks glass with a single ice cube
  • Stir the mix until the ice cube has melted enough to dissolve the sugar
  • Add another 3 to 4 ice cubes and half of the Batavia Arrack then stir for around 60 seconds
  • Top up the glass with more ice and add the rest of the Batavia Arrack, then stir for another 60 seconds
  • Cut a piece of orange peel about the size of your thumb (be careful not to bend it yet). Hold the piece of orange peel over the glass and bend it to release some oil into the drink
  • Add the orange peel to the drink, stir a couple more times and serve. It’s well worth the wait
