Plum Rum Old Fashioned

  • Add rum, Plum Syrup and bitters to a yari (or similar stirring vessel). Add ice and use a bar spoon to stir for 30 seconds. See our How To Make Plum Rum Old Fashioned video for a visual demonstrarion. 

  • Strain cocktail into a clean glass with fresh ice. (We like to use a large ice cube so slow dillution.) Garnish with a plum wedge, if using. Cheers!

Plum Syrup

  • Gather, measure and prepare the Plum Syrup ingredients as listed.

  • In a small saucepan, dissolve sugar in water over medium-high heat. Once sugar is dissolved, add sliced plums and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 5 minutes.

  • With a standard or immersion blender, puree Plum Syrup until smooth. Strain syrup through a fine mesh strainer. We like to strain our syrup twice, to remove any fine particles.

  • Allow syrup to cool to room-temperature. Use syrup in this Plum Rum Old Fashioned recipe immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
