Yolo Rum Sunrise

From sunset to sunrise, and any time in-between, a Yolo Sunrise is perfect way to spice up your day!

Featuring the clean, smooth taste of Yolo Silver our take on the traditional Sunrise will have you seizing the day no matter what time it is. For those feeling extra crafty behind the bar, try using fresh squeezed OJ and locally-sourced, handcrafted grenadine.

Yolo Sunrise Recipe

1.5 oz. Yolo Rum Silver
2 oz. OJ
Splash of sparkling water
1.5 oz. grenadine syrup
Orange slice/wheel, for garnish (optional)
Some ice

A bucket or rocks glass
A measuring jigger
And a spoon

The trick to the perfect sunrise is patience—and the layering of flavors

STEP 1 –

Fill your 10 oz. rocks glass with ice.

STEP 2 –

Using your jigger, add 1.5 oz of Yolo Rum Silver to the rocks glass. Next, using a spoon, carefully pour in the grenadine syrup into the glass over back of the spoon. This is what will give your Sunrise it’s trademark gradient. Once the grenadine has settled, add a 2 oz. of your favorite orange juice and top off with the sparkling water.

STEP 3 –

Garnish with an orange wheel or slice.  Enjoy!

Total Prep Time: 5-7 minutes

Dark and Spicy with Yolo Rum

This Yolo Rum recipe will help you take shelter from the storm in this safe harbor!

Everyone knows about the popular dark and murky rum cocktail that is trending at some hipster bars. Yet each mixologist always adds or omits something in this simple cocktail. We decided to completely remove the storm from the name and we added some spicy instead. We also want to warm you about getting carried away and adding too much of any of these ingredients. By just carelessly adding these ingredients together you can ruin the whole experience, so pay close attention to the ratios. Also blanching the sliced jalapeño for two minutes in boiling water and letting them rest in an ice bath before serving, will improve the color and balance of the jalapeño’s natural spice. No true Bermudian would put jalapeño in their sad and stormy cocktail, but here in Colorado, that’s how we love it!

Denver Donkey with Colorado’s Yolo Rum

Get a kick out of this classic cocktail recipe, remixed into a new Denver, Colorado original!

Ginger beer vs. ginger ale has changed the American palate forever and has even some high end clubs and restaurants completely omitting its cheaper cousin ale, all together. We highly recommend trying to find the highest quality ingredients available in your market for sure, but if ginger ale is the only option, then be our guest.

Closely related to its cousin the Moscow Mule, but this version has rum instead of vodka. If you are a regular rum & coke drinker and you’re looking to spice it up, this cocktail is perfect for you. Try serving this cocktail as an alternative option if you regularly serve rum & coke or a Moscow Mule.
