Winter Rose Rum Cocktail

Winter Rose Rum Cocktail is a beautiful simplicity to make cocktail combining two rums with refreshing citrus and lavender syrup. The cocktail comes from old recipe ‘Rose Hall’ I found in one of my cocktail books. I don’t know the original creator of the cocktail, but I love it, and of course, I had to put my twist on the recipe.

Winter Rose Rum Cocktail

Winter Rose Rum Cocktail is simple and delicious.

I don’t know about you, but I am not a big fan of the winter. Ok, I love it when it is snowing, and i have the chance to go and to ski. However, living in the United Kingdom is not the best place to get snow or find a decent ski resort. I know I can’t change the weather, but I can make my days much brighter with cocktails. For today cocktail, I got the idea from a recipe in the ’World Bartender Guide’, and I have to say I am impressed by the simplicity and delicious taste.

Initially, the recipe uses Jamaican Rum, but I decided to use two different rums instead. My leading rum is the Haitian Clairin Communal Rum. The Rum is a blend of the four Clairins from the four communes of Cavaillon, Barraderes, Pignon and St Michel de l’Attalaye.

Next, we have Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum from Australia. The Rum is a blend of Fijian and Papua New Guinean rum spiced up with a secret recipe including Australian bananas from North Queensland.

Finally, a banana liqueur, freshly squeezed orange, lime juice and pleasant floral taste from Monin Lavender Syrup. All of these ingredients create a refreshing citrusy and light cocktail to enjoy during any season, but if you ask me, it is the perfect beach holiday sip. You can check the Carioca Cooler, a favoured cocktail of mine with Clairin Communal Rum.
