Vive L’Orange – Cognac Rum Orange Cocktail

This week’s #DrinkYourGram is one delicious sipper. Thanks to your votes, we’ve got a tasty Brandy based cocktail that’s paired up with Rum! Here were the results:

Vote #1 – Whisk(e)y vs. Cognac (56%)

Vote # 2 – Herbs vs. Spices (58%)

Vote #3 (How would you like it served?)

– Straight up (71%) vs. Porthole Infuser

Vote #4 – Apples vs. Oranges (62%)

The one thing I want to make note of is the spice component. There’s so many ways this could be done and I decided to infuse it in 2 unique moments. The Rum that’s paired with this cocktail always brings some spiced notes naturally, with Flor de Cana’s 7 yr old bringing on nutmeg and vanilla. Then we have the Vermut coming from Lustau, which brings out a lot of citrus considering a Red vermouth, but also raisin and a dash of cinnamon.
