FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is the Old Caribbean stirred instead of shaken?

The Old Caribbean is stirred instead of shaken to avoid over-diluting the cocktail, which could compromise its rich flavors. Stirring gently combines the ingredients, preserving the clarity and smooth texture of the drink.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I use a different type of rum if I don't have gold rum for the Old Caribbean?

Yes, you can use a different type of rum for the Old Caribbean. While gold rum offers a specific flavor profile, using a dark rum can provide a deeper taste, or a light rum for a milder cocktail, depending on your preference.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What garnish works best with the Old Caribbean?

A slice of lime or a lime twist works wonderfully as a garnish for the Old Caribbean. It complements the lime ingredient in the drink and adds a fresh, appealing look while enhancing the cocktail's citrus aroma.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve the Old Caribbean to preserve its flavor and appearance?

The Old Caribbean is best served in a lowball glass over ice. This presentation maintains the cold temperature, ensuring a refreshing experience. Use large ice cubes to minimize dilution and preserve the drink's rich flavors.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of the Old Caribbean compare to that of a typical cocktail?

The Old Caribbean has an alcohol content of 31.58%, which is relatively high compared to many classic cocktails. For instance, a classic Margarita has an alcohol content around 26-30%, making the Old Caribbean a stronger option.
