Medjool Date Cocktail

Ingredients

  • 8 (355 ml) shots spiced rum (equivalent to 1 ½ cups)
  • ½ cup Natural Delights Date Syrup
  • 6 dashes orange bitters
  • ice cubes
  • splash of club soda
  • (garnish) cinnamon stick
  • (garnish) orange peel
  • (garnish) (optional for the fall season) twist or slice of apple cut crosswise – apple suggestions: Jazz, Ambrosia, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady
  • 3/4 cup apple cider (if using this option, add more rum!)

Preparation

  1. In a cocktail shaker, shake the rum, date syrup, orange bitters and orange peel (add apple cider option) together.
  2. Pour the drink over ice cube filled glasses. 
  3. Add a splash of club soda to each glass.
  4. Garnish with the cinnamon stick and more orange peel (or the optional apple slice).

Note:  While drinking, occasionally stir with the cinnamon stick since the date syrup tends to settle to the bottom.
