Saffron Blanco Rum Crusta

This fruity, citrusy rum cocktail gets extra depth & complexity from a saffron simple syrup. The saffron thread(s) resting atop the lemon wheel garnish really capture the eye.

  • 2oz White Rum (we used Bacardi)
  • 1/2oz Lemon Juice
  • 1/2oz Saffron Simple Syrup
  • 1/4oz Luxardo Maraschino Liquor
  • Lemon Wedge
  • Rim: Granulated White Sugar
  • Garnish: Thin Lemon Wheel, Reserved Saffron Thread(s) from Simple Syrup



Whet the rim of a cocktail glass with the lemon wedge & crust it with the sugar on one side.

Combine the rum, lemon, simple syrup & luxardo in a mixing glass with ice. Shake until well chilled.

Strain the drink into the prepared glass.

Float the lemon wheel in the drink & carefully top it with a few of the reserved saffron threads. Serve.
