1pt Bootleg Old Fashioned

Ingredient Cocktail (1) Batch (6+)
1pt Ginger-infused Rum 2 oz 375ml*
Simple Syrup ½ oz 3 oz
Water ½ oz 3 oz
Angostura Bitters Dash Several dashes
Orange Bitters Dash Several dashes

* 375ml is half of a standard 750ml bottle of spirits

Infuse 375ml of rum with one packet of 1pt Ginger Blend for 2-3 hours, strain and reserve liquid for cocktail. Infused spirits do not need to be refrigerated and can be used as normal. Combine infused rum, simple syrup, and bitters in a mixing glass with ice. Stir. If batching, stir ingredients in a pitcher instead of using a mixing glass, chilling with ice as desired. Strain over medium-large ice cube/s garnish with (dried) pineapple slice.

For a no-alcohol alternative (mocktail): infuse fresh, cold, filtered water instead of spirit and follow recipe as written

About this Bootleg Old Fashioned rum cocktaila throwback to the rumrunner days of the Prohibition-era. A quick drink on the docks while the contraband was loading, then the sprint through the Straights of Florida back to the Keys and into the waiting trucks for the run north. What was in that dockside drink? Only what counts.
