Getting Classy with Gosling’s Old Rum

Why, hello there. I’m assuming you’re looking for a sophisticated rum drink to impress all your friends for International Rum Day? Well, look no further. This Spirit Forward cocktail combines a stunning combination of Gosling’s Old Rum, Amara (Blood Orange Amaro!), Amontillado Sherry, Vermouth and a dash of Angostura to tie everything together. Want to learn how it’s made? Check out the recipe below!

I didn’t use the typical Luxardo Cherries for this one. Instead I used local KVAS‘s Black Pepper Whiskey Cherries which are out of this world. If you can, make sure to pick up a can!
