Fall is the idyllic season… comforting smells, golden hues, and a welcomed chill greeting the air. For the cocktail enthusiast, fall makes way for new inspiration, namely experimenting with the rich, spice-infused flavor of rum.

A recent edition to the market, Pink Pigeon , separately blends the finest natural Bourbon vanilla, orange peel and floral honey notes via Reunion orchids to craft their signature rum. Named after the rare and endangered pink pigeon species from the island of Mauritius, the brand has already claimed it’s place with mixologists, such as Kate Grutman of Roosevelt Hotel Hollywood’s, Spare Room Bar.

Pink Pigeon has also been spotted gracing the cocktail menus of Chicago’s Roka Akor’s Sake & Shochu Lounge and luxury Italian restaurant, Drago Centro in LA. From frothy egg yolks and nutmeg garnish to popular speakeasy touches of Fernet and black walnut bitters, these four Pink Pigeon recipes will have you “sipping” rum in a whole new way.
