Author Notes: In honor of "National Rum Day," August 16th, and with a surplus of raisins on hand, I thought a rum raisin cocktail would be appropriate. This drink benefits greatly from decent bitters and home-whipped cream. But anything you have on hand works nicely. The whipped cream can be replaced with just a splash of milk or cream, and the bitters can be replaced with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg, or skipped entirely, especially with a good spiced rum.
I borrowed the concept for the raisin syrup from Morgan at http://www.foodietails.com/2014/09/14/rum-raisin-old-fashioned/ —Dr.Insomnia
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
- 2 ounces spiced rum
- 1 ounce raisin syrup

- 2 dashes spiced bitters
- Begin by making raisin syrup. Combine raisins, sugar, and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Simmer syrup for 30 minutes, then set aside to cool.
- Strain raisins from syrup.
- Combine rum, raisin syrup, whipped cream, and bitters in a cocktail shaker. Shake thoroughly and strain into ice-filled Old Fashioned glass.
