The host for this month´s  Mixology Monday is Sass & Gin.

mxmologoLaura declared March the month of the Old Fashioned, such a great idea!

And here is my creation, the Batavian Affair


1 tsp Unrefined Brown Sugar, 3 dashes Bitter Truth Old Times Aromatic Bitters, 1 splash of Water, 1 oz. Batavia Arrack, 1 oz. Dutch Genever, 1 Lemon Peel, 1 Orange Peel


In the bottom of an old-fashioned glass carefully mix the brown sugar, bitters and a splash of water.

1-100_8968Add the Batavia Arrack, the Dutch Genever and a large piece of ice and stir again. Garnish with a lemon peel and an orange peel.

1-100_8980Tasting Notes

The coarse and rustic aroma of the Batavia Arrack and the smooth taste of the old Genever combines so well with the very aromatic unrefined brown sugar, the Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters reminiscent of cinnamon, cardamom, anise and cloves, and the citrusy freshness of the orange and lemon peels.
