No better way to kick off the weekend that this magic combo of rum, orgeat & burnt rosemary.
Recipe for Rum & Orgeat Cocktail with Burnt Rosemary by Anisa Sabet for The Macadames.
Hey friend! Before I get to this bangin recipe, I was wondering if you’ve got your copy of my guide on “8 Ways To Make Your Photos More Moody”?

Do you need to be treated to a cocktail and a good playlist come Friday?
Guys, it’s no secret I have a serious soft spot, no, let’s call it what it is, a giant cotton wool ball HOLE, that is saved especially for a good tipple (and good coffee). The dependency takes on a new level come the weekend. A tough work-week, wrangling a toddler all damn day, planning to exercise more (but failing to), are all causes for needing that cocktail Friday afternoon.
Whilst going out for drinks is all I want to do most of the time, having to juggle the dinner / bath fiasco, I usually settle for a homemade version and the Kitchen Swagger on Spotify (if you haven’t heard, do it now!!!).
Rum isn’t usually by thing, but in this cocktail, it sings. The combo of spiced rum, orgeat, some rosemary sugar syrup + the pretty (but also nice smelling) burnt rosemary really work. All this needs is a good cheese plate and you’re set.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and i’d love to know what you think.
