Rum and Orange Batch Cocktail

Rum and Orange Batch Cocktail

If you prefer strong bitter flavours this rum and orange batch cocktail is a fantastic one to try. It has been described as starting out warm, with a light, molasses-y sweetness coming through in the first sip but then transforming into a pleasantly bitter bite. Warning though, this is a smoky, strong drink not for the faint-hearted.
