Medjool Date Cocktail

Medjool Date Cocktail


  • 8 (1.5 ounce) shots rum (equivalent to 1 ½ cup)

  • ½ cup Natural Delights Medjool date syrup  

  • 6 dashes orange bitters

  • ice cubes

  • splash of soda water

  • (garnish) orange peel

  • (garnish) cinnamon stick


  1. In a cocktail shaker, shake the rum, Medjool date syrup, orange bitters and orange peel together.  

  2. Pour the drink over ice cube filled glasses.

  3. Add a splash of soda water to each glass.

  4. Garnish with the cinnamon stick and more orange peel.

Notes: It’s best if you use a lightly spiced rum, like those of the Bundaberg and Beenleigh brands. While drinking; occasionally stir with the cinnamon stick since the Medjool date syrup tends to settle to the bottom.
