Is Old Monk Bae? Then Get All Rummed Up With These Old Monk Cocktails In Town!

For many of us, rum is equal to Old Monk. And with good reason! An iconic, indie brand, Old Monk has fuelled many a memorable night even when the wallets were thin. While we do love our classic Rum & Coke {no contest there}, there are times when we could do with Old Monk laced cocktails as well. So, when you feel like paying your respects to this iconic run, we recommend you head to these bars where they’ll whip you up a delicious cocktail made with Old Monk.

Hyper Monk @ The Permit Room

Hyper Monk @ The Permit Room

The creativity that rules the roost on this popular hotspot’s food menu runs wildly and freely through its bar offerings as well. For the Old Monk aficionados, we point you in the direction of the Hyper Monk that feature the beloved rum with espresso coffee, coconut syrup, and a dash of cinnamon powder.

Rum Diary @ Cafe Felix

Hunter S Thompson and the heady shores of Puerto Rico would be proud of the Old Monk concoction at this laidback restaurant. With the Rum Diary, you get a potent mixture of white and gold rum that’s accompanied by fresh fig, lime juice, mint leaves, and demerara sugar.

Mumma Nu Double Rose @ SodaBottleOpenerWala

The Old Monk cocktails at this chic joint sure do showcase some out-of-the-box flavours. Start off with sipping on the Mumma Nu Double Rose. Old Monk and whiskey rub shoulders, in this one, and a saffron and date mix along with beaten eggs join the party. There’s also the Bombay Julep where the rum mingles with apricot, honey, and mint leaves.

Spiced Old Monk @ The Humming Tree

Old Monk lovers are in for a real treat at The Humming Tree. You get not one or two cocktails but four different concoctions to choose from. Of these, we pick the Spiced Old Monk that’s got a bit of sugar and spice along with the rum. We also love the Dr. Special where the dark rum is taken to the next level with hints of cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom.

Baga Bong @ Lady Baga

Travel to the sunny beaches of Goa at this kitschy, new restaurant. To complete the picture, we recommend you arm yourself with a Baga Bong, where dark and white rum meet. The splash of Cointreau, lime, grapefruit, and passion fruit add to the excitement.

Holy Mojo @ Bar Bar

At this bar stock exchange, place your money on the Holy Mojo and you won’t be disappointed. The Old Monk White Rum headlines this drink. And it is accompanied by fresh cucumber, basil, mint, and green and red apples.

Black Sumatra @ Shizusan Shophouse & Bar

This spiffy restaurant doesn’t dare messing around with good ole’ Old Monk. Order the Black Sumatra and you are present with a delightful drink that includes Amaretto{an almond-flavoured, Italian liqueur} and espresso along with the rum.
