Firecracker Cocktail

Jump to Recipe

The Firecracker cocktail is a drink built with aged rum, orange liqueur, watermelon, lime juice, sugar syrup, and cayenne pepper for a little tang!

Firecracker Cocktail Info

This drink offers a dark, nutty rum flavor with hints of sweet orange liqueur, watermelon, and spice. The watermelon is not just only for the added flavor and sweetness, but also for additional dilution which is needed in this drink. Without the extra water, it would become too strong, and too spicy!


Sweet but spicy!
