So, I knew that dark rum and cherry bitters was bound to be a winning combination as well. This cocktail is a new take on the classic Old-Fashioned cocktail. I have to say it's a lot more fun! To top it all off I got to buy a box of sugar cubes. Do you have any idea how fun sugar cubes are? I had a hard time not taking them all out of the box and making my very own igloo.

Place sugar cube at the bottom of a lowball glass. Pour bitters directly onto sugar. Fill glass with ice cubes, stir in rum and garnish with maraschino cherries. Serve.
