Medjool Date Cocktail

Medjool Date Cocktail


  • 8 (1.5 ounce) shots rum (equivalent to 1 ½ cups)
  • ½ cup Natural Delights Date Syrup
  • 6 dashes orange bitters
  • ice cubes
  • splash of club soda
  • (garnish) orange peel
  • (garnish) cinnamon stick


  1. In a cocktail shaker, shake the rum, date syrup, orange bitters and orange peel together.
  2. Pour the drink over ice cube filled glasses. 
  3. Add a splash of club soda to each glass.
  4. Garnish with cinnamon stick and more orange peel.

Notes: It’s best if you use a lightly spiced rum, like Shellback. While drinking, occasionally stir with the cinnamon stick since the date syrup tends to settle to the bottom.
