Time to put the kettle on, honey, cos we’re heating things up for BarChick Advent Day 5 and giving away everything you need to make this rich, cosy serve from the Bajan rum legends at Mount Gay, including a bottle of Mount Gay XO. Hot damn!
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.
Yeah, we’re dreaming of a white-sand Christmas with a glass of this in hand, but we’ll settle for bringing the warmth to our crib with this hot honey twist on a classic Old Fashioned. Aged rum, honey and a hint of bitters = our kinda festive flavours.
45ml Mount Gay XO
1 teaspoon honey (go wild and use the good stuff)
2 dashes Angostura bitters
45ml hot water
Pour all ingredients into an Old Fashioned glass, then stir until the honey dissolves. Express the orange peel, then serve.
