Orange Sweeney

Hey folks! I’ve teamed up with Kirk & Sweeney to give you my take on a [boozy] childhood favorite (recipe below)! Inspired by the flavor combo of oranges and cream - the 12 year old Kirk & Sweeney rum’s bold notes of caramel and and sweet vanilla is just KILLER in this cocktail.  Oh and you’re probably going to want to make more than one!




  • 1½ oz Kirk & Sweeney 12 Year Dominican Rum

  • 1 oz Dry Curacao

  • ½ oz Heavy Cream

  • ½ oz Fresh Blood Orange Juice

  • ¼ oz Fresh Lemon Juice

  • 5 Drops Crude Bitters Lavender Bitters

  • Fresh Grated Nutmeg

  • Fresh Grated Orange Zest


Combine all ingredients in a shaking tin with ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Pour and strain over a large tulip filled to the brim with crushed ice. Garnish with fresh grated nutmeg and orange zest, finish with a dehydrated orange wheel. Serve and enjoy!
