I whipped up this sweet, delicious cocktail for my wife and me to share on our 17th anniversary. A refreshing blend of rum, Grand Marnier, blood orange bitters, and a dash of agave nectar made for a sweet ending to our anniversary day.
- 2 oz. white rum
- 1 oz. Grand Marnier
- 1/2 oz. blood orange bitters
- 1/2 tsp. agave nectar (or honey)
- 3 oz. water
- orange slice (optional)
Mix the rum, Grand Marnier, bitters, agave, and water in a shaker with ice. Pour over ice and garnish with an orange slice if desired.

You could also substitute simple syrup for the agave. I used agave as I didn’t have time to whip up a batch of simple syrup. You could also try club soda instead of water.
Aren’t YOU a sweetheart to create this for your special day. Thanks and congratulations.
