Cocktail Friday: an Orange Plantation

Weekend and time for Cocktail Friday!
Since it’s almost Kingsday here in Holland (Monday 27th of April), I wanted to mix an orange cocktail this time. With a little search in one of my Mix books, I found an Orange Plantation. Wednesday all the bottles for this Cocktail Friday came in and yesterday we pre-tested the cocktail.
I expected the Dry Orange to be a little more orange, so a little bit disappointed, since I wanted to make an orange one and it looks a little bit more brownish now.

After I mixed the Orange Plantation cocktail and tasted it, hahaha I felt drunk immediately;-). No not really, but it was a little bit strong for our taste.

So we put some orange juice into the mix and liked it more then. Haha but it was still enough for a Thursday night, so only one was enough;-).
The taste of an Orange plantation is good en nice for a summer night, but not really special. I like rum a lot, but I prefer to drink it pure (brown rum, older age) or with cola or in a Mojito. Or maybe in another cocktail I haven’t tasted before.

Today no cocktails for me, I’m off to a high wine with one of my friends for her birthday-;).
Enjoy your weekend!

Edit: This is a post from my old Photos for foodies. I quit with this Blog, but it didn’t feel good to lose all the recipes, that’s why I copied all the posts to Cakes and Pumps and later to Goodlives. This post is written in 2015 by myself.

The Recipe:

Cocktail Friday: an Orange Plantation

Orange Plantation cocktail for Cocktail Friday. I choose the orange plantation cocktail since it's almost kingsday in Holland.
Servings 1


  • 1 part White rum
  • 1 part Orange Curacao I used Bols Dry Orange
  • Orange juice So much as you want for your own taste
  • 1 zips of Angostura
  • 1 teaspoon of grenadine
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • Peace of pineapple for decoration


  • Mix the white rum, Orange curacao, the Angostura, the Grenadine and lemon juice in a cocktailshaker.
  • Fill the glasses with the Cocktail mix.
  • Put orange juice to your own taste in the glass and mix it with a spoon. The original orange plantation recipe is without the orange juice, but for our taste it was a little bit too strong.
  • After that put a slice of pinapple on the edge of the glass, and your cocktail is ready.
  • This cocktail tastes also good with some icecubes in it.

With Love Claudia
