  • 2 ounces orange juice (1/4 cup)

Recipe Notes

*To make simple syrup, combine equal parts water and granulated sugar in a saucepan. (1 cup water to 1 cup sugar). Heat, stirring, until sugar is dissolved and small bubbles begin to form around the side of the pan. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 weeks. 

Non-Alcoholic Variation:

Omit rum and increase orange juice to 1/2 cup, adding a bit of water to the blender to thin the mixture, as needed.
