I recently returned from another wonderful Fresh Air Retreat in Austin, Texas. My glass is full from the fantastic interactions with fellow food bloggers during a week of eating delicious food, learning from brands, and having a lot of fun! While I talked all about the wonderful meetings we had with Envy Apples, Dave’s Killer Bread, Raptive, and Zwilling, today I want to share this delightfully delish Espresso Rum Martini that I developed in partnership with Flor de Caña.

What you’ll NEed

Materials to make espresso rum martini scaled
  • Cocktail shaker: If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you could try a blender bottle, or a mason jar with a lid.
  • Measuring cup: You don’t need a fancy double-headed jigger, but a measuring cup that reads in ounces will do the trick.
  • Flor de Caña rum: The flavor profile is exceptionally smooth with rich flavors that comes from aging their rum in a bourbon barrel.
  • Flor de Caña spresso: A light-bodied coffee liquor with a dry and smooth finish.
  • Chilled espresso: You could also use just cold brew coffee, but I love the extra kick that the chilled espresso gives the drink.
  • Simple syrup: You can use store bought, or easily make your own by heating 1 cup of sugar with water until dissolved.

Why Drink Flor De Caña

Flor de Caña has been a family owned business for over 130 years! And in that time, they have always strived to give back to the community and their workers. I love supporting businesses that take care of their people, but they also make amazing products. Their premium rums are great for any occasion! They have high-end, sipping rums as well as more versatile, younger rums that are perfect for mixing and cocktails! They also don’t use any artificial ingredients or added sugars, which is a huge selling point to me, and won’t be any surprise to my followers.
