The Old Kraken Cocktail

Imagine an old fashioned designed with a spiced rum and you’re on the right path to the Old Kraken. Made in the same fashion (pun intended), but made for those that love rum over whiskey.

The recipe holds up well, turns out utilizing a common ratio for a recipe does keep the balance and flavor right where it needs to be, even if this is slightly more sweet on the palette. In some ways, this still fits the trifecta of Caribbean style: rum, lime and sugar.
