Bacardi Torched Cherry Burnt Berry Cocktail Recipe

After one sip, you’ll be grabbing an axe like Mr. Washington.

The Bacardi Torched Cherry flavor flowed into our lives this spring and Bacardi is calling it “the first of its kind.” And why is that? This rum actually contains aloe, making it the first aloe-infused spirit. Okay, stop the boat. Maybe Bacardi has been out in the sun too long. Aloe is for sunburns. Well apparently, Bacardi has taken the plant, torched it, and created a very interesting mixture of flavors.

I was first introduced to this Bacardi flavor at the Rum Renaissance in Miami Beach. My girl friend was raving about it so I gave it a sip. Not too damn bad.

Burnt Berry Cocktail Recipe

  • 1 part Bacardi Torched Cherry Rum
  • 1.5 parts Sprite
  • 1.5 parts Cranberry Juice or Pomegranate Juice

Shake ingredients and pour over ice into a Highball Glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.

According to the media release Bacardi Torched Cherry combines the flavors of Barbados cherries with the smooth infusion of Torch Plant aloe. “Torch Plant aloe is a succulent, nectar-rich ingredient indigenous to South Africa. It pairs ideally with Barbados cherries, also known as Acerola, a fruit that has recently received considerable attention for its versatility and sweet, robust flavor.” – Bacardi media release.

If you’ve tried the Torched Cherry rum let me know what you thought. I’ll add more recipes for this rum in the future.

    Tried this stuff in NYC when it came out earlier this year. I’m not a big fan of Bacardi (try Ron Barrilito for a true taste of Puerto Rico), but the torched cherry isn’t half bad. Thanks for the recipe!

    Thanks for the comment Steve. I’ll have to give Ron Barrilito a try.

    I tried this one about 3 months ago and really enjoyed it. I like the cherry flavor and it just gives your rum and coke a new twist.

    Sounds like this cherry rum would kick up the average cherry lime-aid! Will have to try.

    Try this delicious Torched Cherry with Dr. Pepper. And a lime wedge of course. I do not drink liquor very often, but after 1 taste of this new rum I might actually buy a bottle of it. I would like to try it mixed with the Vanilla Bacardi and some coke.
