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.
