Peg Leg

Peg Leg cocktail with aged rum, simple syrup, and walnut bitters

There are a zillion different variations on the Old Fashioned’s classic spirit-sweetener-bitters combo, so we don’t often go out of our way to highlight one particular recipe. The Peg Leg, from Pyrat Rum ambassador Anthonry DeSerio, is so good that it warrants special treatment.

It all starts with a good aged rum – DeSerio calls for Pyrat XO, one of our favorites. The black walnut bitters are a perfect highlight to the woody caramel flavors of the rum, and simple syrup completes the trifecta without drawing undue attention to itself.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
