The ‘Don’t Call Me Old-Fashioned,’ Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe

If you know Jared, our Bar Manager, you know he loves a good Dad Joke. But, it’s ap-parent that this isn’t one of them! His modern twist on a Dad classic, the Old Fashioned, both lifts the experience by using Rum instead of Whiskey and ensures it’s not too sweet by featuring Flor de Caña 12-year Rum - which is known for its more subtle sweetness.
