Old-fashioned – A cocktail that traditionally consists of whisky, bitters, sugar, ice, and an orange peel garnish.

The Cocoa Nib Old Fashioned is made with Yardbird‘s cocoa nib shochu, dark rum, and a hand-carved ice rock. The flavor profile of this drink is reminiscent of mint chocolate.


50 ml Yardbird Cocoa Nib Shochu

40 ml Flor de Caña 7 year Dark Rum

2 Dashes Chocolate Bitters

2 Mint Leaves

1 Ice Rock
