BACARDÍ Ocho Old Fashioned
Created in New York in the early 1900s, the iconic Old Fashioned is deemed 'the original cocktail' - a simple mix of whisky, Angostura bitters and sugar. But why not try it with BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho rum instead of whisky and call yourself a visionary.
This contemporary concoction was created to commemorate the commitment that Bacardi has with sports and honors the “Miami Open". The cocktail delivers vibrant wood and molasses flavors that combine with the elegant flowery aromas of St. Germain and the soft refreshing acidity of fresh ruby red grapefruits create the perfect flavors symphony.
