Advent Day 19 - WIN with Mount Gay

Uh huh, honey...

Dark, sexy and rich… is how we’ll be serving our rum cocktails this silly season, and you can WIN a bottle of Mount Gay XO plus cocktail mixing glass, spoon and tote bag so you can do Christmas the BarChick way. 

A little bit of history... 

Forget candy canes, Mount Gay Rum is bringing the sugar cane goods all the way from Barbados to the Christmas party, and they’re sleighing it. Mellow and chill, this rum delivers all the island vibes with hits of ripe bananas, the richness of freshly baked pastry and a smack of warm spices.  

Hell yeah, we’re dreaming of a white-sand Christmas with a glass of this in hand, but as we can’t make it to anywhere tropical rn, we’ll bring the warmth to us with this hot honey twist on an classic Old Fashioned. Aged rum, honey and a hint of bitters = our kinda festive flavours. 

Honey Old Fashioned 
45ml Mount Gay XO 
1 teaspoon honey 
2 dashes Angostura bitters 
45ml hot water 
Orange peel 

Pour all ingredients into an Old Fashioned glass, then stir until the honey dissolves. Express the orange peel, then serve.
