Kumquat Old Fashioned

kumquat old fashioned

An Old Fashioned is a simple yet complex cocktail. There are many variations to this classic cocktail which has been in existence since 1881. Most old fashioneds are made with a quality bourbon or rye whiskey. I have also had an old fashioned made with dark rum that was pretty darn tasty.

The purist would probably not muddle the fruit with the sugar and the bitters.

However, in this case, and in order to infuse my old fashioned with my homegrown kumquats, I am defying tradition and muddling the fruit. The results are superb and suitable for cocktail hour or anytime.
