Rum is known for its versatility; it can very much fall perfectly under a summer drink while becoming a perfect drink for winters when paired with winter flavours like cinnamon and orange.

In this blog, we have curated a list of at-home recipes made with rum for an eventful winter season. Let’s look at them!

1. The Old Fashioned 

cocktail recipes; Clintons' Henstone Old Dog Corn Liquor.

The old-fashioned is beyond the classic taste of bourbon; this drink has the flavours that’ll tickle your taste buds.

To make this recipe, all you need is good quality rum (1 shot), simple syrup (a quarter of a shot) and 2 dashes of quality bitters.

Combine the sugar and bitters in a rocks glass, add ice according to preference and rum, enjoy it chilled. 

The light sweetness from syrup and the luxury herbal mix from bitters blend perfectly with the natural flavours of rum, giving you a perfect winter rum cocktail.

2. The Nightcap 

A classic drink in a whisky glass.

This drink is a hit if you prefer espresso with your poison; The Nightcap is a perfect drink for feeling the hit from caffeine and rum combined.

To make this cocktail, you need quality rum - One and a half shots(preferably flavoured such as vanilla or butterscotch if you want), quality maple syrup as a sweetener - Quarter of a shot, your favourite cold brew - One and a half shots, fresh orange zest, and bitters.

Begin by pouring the rum, cold brew, maple syrup, bitters, and orange zest into a shaker tin with ice and shake vigorously. Strain this mixture into a Collins-style glass with large ice cubes. 

You can, if you want, garnish it with an orange twist for aesthetics

3. Wondering Rascal

The cold season is the perfect time to indulge in cider flavours for some unknown reasons - and if you know what we mean, Wondering Rascal is your drink! This is one of the most straightforward cocktail recipes to refresh your taste buds with all its seasonal flavours.

To make this drink, you will need your base i.e. rum (Six shots), lemon juice (Six shots), almond syrup (Quarter of a shot), apple cider (Three and a half shots), and 2 dashes of bitters.

The method, however, is as easy as it gets. All you have to do is pour everything into a large beer glass, add ice according to your preference and lightly stir.
