Anejo Highball Cocktail Recipe

In my opinion, a perfect cocktail is one that everyone should try, and every bartender should know. The Anejo Highball is one of those for which we should give bartenders extra credit. The drink was created in 2000 by Dale DeGroff as a tribute to Cuban bartenders of the early 1900s. It’s best to make sure to use aejo rum or orange curaçao in this drink so that you can enjoy its full flavor. Costadeau will work as a substitute for orange curacao. Mix this with ice, and you’ll have a refreshing drink, especially for summer or whenever you want a taste of the Caribbean without getting too fruity.
