We tend to drink a lot of old-school cocktails. Maybe we watch too much Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men. But here’s a great cocktail from this century that pays tribute to old-school cocktails of the 1900s. It was created by Dale DeGroff and is a bit similar to a Moscow Mule. It’s perfect for warmer weather.
- 1 1/2 ounces Anejo rum
- 1/2 ounce orange curaco
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
- 2 ounces ginger beer
- lime or orange wedge
Fill a Collins glass with ice. Pour in liquors, juice and bitters. Top with ginger beer and garnish with an orange or lime wedge.
