How to Make a Honey Old Fashioned Rum Cocktail with Devon Rum Co Honey Spiced Rum


You can’t talk about classic cocktails without mentioning the effortlessly cool Old Fashioned. 

Regularly recorded as one of the world’s earliest official cocktails, the original Old Fashioned consists of four simple ingredients: a spirit (usually whiskey or bourbon), bitters, water, and sugar.

While this popular cocktail has always been a crowd pleaser, it gained a whole new level of attention in the early 2000s, as the chosen drink of Don Draper in the hit show Mad Men. 

Since then, there have been hundreds of variations on the traditional Old Fashioned cocktail, and many of them incorporate rum.

Rum works wonderfully as an alternative in an Old Fashioned thanks mostly to its richness and character. And that’s where our Honey Old Fashioned comes into play!

This cracking cocktail blends all the historic charm of a traditional Old Fashioned with the spice and sweetness of our award-winning Honey Spiced Rum. It’s easy to mix, easier to drink, and oozes class.
