Rum in the Cold Seasons? You Bet!
You might assume that rum is only used in tropical drinks while on warm, sandy beaches. Although there is no denying that the tropics are an idyllic setting to enjoy a delicious adult beverage, the fact is, rum can be enjoyed during any season. Yes, even in the winter!
Here are some of our favorite rum recipes to make during the cold season:
This Espresso Martini is like a caffeinated dessert in a glass, combining our Vanilla Rum with maple syrup, maple creme liqueur, and cold brew coffee.
Dirty Chai Martini
Get fancy with this chai and coffee martini, combining our Rum 44 with chai tea, maple syrup, cold brew coffee, milk and star anise.
This cocktail will give you all the fall and winter season vibes, combining our First Run Rum, Orange Curaçao, a honey and ginger syrup, lemon juice, and bitters.
This recipe features our PX Rum, which adds unique flavor when paired with Carpano Antica, Amaro Averna and Cocchi di Torino. We offer two variations to this recipe, one a bit more sweet than the other.
Maple Cask Rum Hot Toddy
Like a hot tea, but better. This simple cold weather warmer combines the flavors of allspice, honey, lemon and our Maple Cask Rum with hot water.
Boozy Hot Chocolate
This boozy adult winter beverage is super easy to make (and also super tasty), combining our Vanilla Rum with Hot Chocolate, and topped with whipped cream.
Russell Warren Old Fashioned
We think an Old Fashioned is a good choice any time of year, and this delightful cocktail is no exception, blending the flavors of our Maple Cask Rum with honey syrup, walnut bitters and club soda.
First Run Rum, citrus, simple syrup and Allspice Dram—with it’s flavors of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg—combine to make an excellent daiquiri for the cold weather season.
Winter Tropics Daiquiri
Not to be confused with our Winter Daiquiri, this warm and spiced recipe combines our First Run Rum with fresh squeezed lime juice, cream of coconut, Bittercube Blackstrap Bitters and cinnamon.
Goodbye to Winter
As the cold season comes to a close, say Goodbye to Winter with a cocktail that's a little sweet and a little spicy, combining our Maple Cask Rum with Nocino Liqueur, cinnamon syrup and Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters.
If you prefer to keep things simple, you can always try our PX Rum in a snifter. It’s a great sipper while sitting by a cozy fire.
