Ring in the holiday festivities this season with two cocktails from the FACUNDO Rum Collection and BACARDÍ Gran Reserva line. With every sip, a sense of class and refinement will heighten your holiday soiree experience.
The first, EXIMO Noir, evokes the glamorous feel of Gatsby-reminiscent affairs, ideal for sophisticated holiday cocktail parties. Made with FACUNDO EXIMO, the rich mahogany color of this cocktail is achieved by combining the dark rum with cold brew coffee syrup and Amaro Montenegro. The tang of Combier orange liqueur adds sweetness to the EXIMO Noir, creating an exquisite cocktail that will elevate any holiday gathering into a dazzling revelry.
FACUNDO EXIMO, from the FACUNDO Rum Collection, is a mix of medium to heavy bodied dark rums blended and then aged in fine oak barrels. The rich flavors of the rum complement the tastes of the liqueurs for a delectable libation.
The Old Cuban is another seasonal cocktail that will transform any New Year’s Eve party into a sparkling swirl of celebration. Made with BACARDÍ 8 Años, mixed with Prosecco, mint leaves, fresh lime juice, simple syrup and Angostura bitters, this modernized bubbly concoction is a deliciously effortless way to lift your gathering to new heights of sophistication, making it perfect for watching the ball drop on NYE.
Ideal for enjoying in cooler weather, BACARDÍ 8 Años is made from a selection of reserve rums, barrel-aged for 8 years, forming a complex, woody flavor complemented by notes of apricot, butterscotch, and nutmeg. The dark rum is a Bacardí family private blend, originally crafted in 1862 and kept secret for seven generations. Enjoyed for over 154 years, this timeless recipe is an impeccable choice to toast the New Year with friends and family.
