3 Blood Orange Vanilla Rum Cocktails

As promised, it’s time for some cocktail recipes with the blood orange vanilla infused rum. My goal with these blood orange vanilla rum cocktails was to highlight the infused rum, while also use blood oranges in a variety of ways. It took a few tries on some of the recipes, but I’m happy with the final results. I hope you are too.

While I don’t normally pick favorites, I do have to say my favorite blood orange vanilla rum cocktail from this list is the last one. I love the combination of blood oranges, fresh sage with a little bit of smoke from the mezcal. And I have to give a thank you to my friend Lacie for helping me name it. That’s sometimes the hardest part of drink creating for me.
