The Grand Old Fashioned is a rum variation of a whiskey favorite. This recipe is spicy, but not a burn your mouth off kind of spice. This is definitely for those who love their rum on the rocks with barely a hint of anything else. The rum flavor profile remains completely intact with faint hint of chocolate orange. It’s a lovely classic variation without a lot of fussy trouble.
