This rum orange carrot cocktail will give a splash of color to any party spread!
I am a Blogtender for Blue Chair Bay Rum and a member of their Blogtender Nation. This means two things. One, I get to sample and review delicious rum from Blue Chair Bay. And two, I get to share a fun cocktail with you, just in time for the Super Bowl
I’m not usually a fan of rum, but I liked the bottle of white rum I received to review. It is very smooth, so much so that I could probably drink it in a glass over ice, with a sprig or two of mint. I can totally see this particular white rum substituting the vodka in my usual vodka and soda cocktails!
I started planning this cocktail recipe before the BCB White Rum bottle arrived and had to start over when I finally got my first taste. I thought I was going to have to hide how it tasted with a lot of ingredients but I changed my mind. All of the cocktail ideas I brainstormed had to be trashed.
Rum Orange Carrot Cocktail
Instead, I decided to make a cocktail with crisp flavor and bright color. Super bright in fact, to stand out amongst the beer cans and hot wings so often found at Super Bowl parties. (If you are looking for a substitute for boring Super Bowl food, check out game day recipes.)
Well, this rum orange carrot cocktail does the trick. Don’t get scared off by the inclusion of carrot juice. It adds a sweetness and helps balance out the acidity of the orange juice. And all together in a glass with a lime garnish, the combination will balance the hot wings and spicy dips you’re going to consume while watching the game!
- 1 ½ ounce white rum
- 2 ounces orange juice
