Warm Orange Passion Cocktail

warm orange passion cocktail

This Warm Orange Passion Cocktail takes it’s inspiration from a restaurant in Mayfair here in London named Hush. Usually at this time of year they have movies in their courtyard and it is the kind of place you seek out because of the warmth of the food, environment and one winter I had the luck to be able to order a hot cocktail which I’ve craved ever since!

Due to current events that don’t need to mentioned the option to go and watch a movie in their courtyard whilst enjoying a warm cocktail so a little improvisation has to be whipped up to make do for missing out on not being able to experience this fine establishment. So much just doesn’t look normal and this abnormality has been going on so long that the blur of life here in the UK is making seasonal depression heavier than usual. How are you finding ways to cope through this?

Facing another month or two sitting at home with only essential reasons to leave the house, this kind of bright warm drink to wrap between your hands and for some brightness into these dark January days which are cold and getting outside isn’t the most enticing option.

Someone asked me via a zoom call back to New Zealand what my favorite thing about London is and going to Hush in the middle of winter had to be something I looked forward to in the depths of a sweaty summer where the city is so full of tourists that you look forward to quieter and colder days where things are made for those of us that are here year round.

Right now the things to love about this city are not possible. The ways it lights up in the winter months makes the darkness better and gives you a reason to leave the house. So in a sense finding ways to utilize perfectly seasonal oranges or orange juice if you’d prefer and this will be ready in about 20 minutes flat is one way to cope.

My love of orange and passion has already been shown here in a very summer approriate manner, but if I had to choose between that recipe or this one, I’d choose this one because it requires less patience and is a very easy recipe indeed, especially when you want to warm up and feel a little relaxed. Obviously, please always drink responsibly, though to be fair this is pretty strong so I wouldn’t recommend making another batch of this without a good meal in between!

How to prepare the Warm Orange Passion Cocktail

  • Make your orange syrup: Place your syrup ingredients into a saucepan and heat until formed.

Tips for the best Warm Orange Passion Cocktail

Halving the strong liqor in this: This cocktail is quite strong if you aren’t a big drinker (speaking as one who isn’t), if you were to halve a portion of alcohol it would be better to halve the rum.
