  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/4 to 1/2 ounce 151-proof rum

Instructions

  1. This recipe originally appeared on Giada's Holiday Handbook. Episode: Christmas Cocktails.
  2. Combine the orange liqueur, white rum, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for 30 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass or large coupe.
