Just in time for the holiday season and family gatherings, BACARDÍ encourages consumers to celebrate the holidays this year the Caribbean way, with the BACARDÍ Coquito. Beloved across the island region during this festive season, the BACARDÍ Coquito is made with the world’s most awarded rum and is a delicious combination of tropical flavors and holiday cheer. This rich cocktail features BACARDÍ Superior, combined with evaporated milk, condensed milk, coconut cream and vanilla extract, then garnished with cinnamon, coconut flakes and cinnamon sticks; the perfect companion for the upcoming winter months.
For a unique take on a creamy holiday cocktail, the FACUNDO Rum Collection introduces The Promise, a sweet and tangy cocktail made with FACUNDO NEO white rum, yellow Chartreuse, honey syrup and milk kefir. To complement the tang of the cocktail, FACUNDO NEO – a delicately balanced blend of medium-to-heavy-bodied rums aged up to 8 years – contributes smooth and sweet notes and a clean, balanced finish to the cocktail.
Another signature cocktail we recommend for the holiday season is the BACARDÍ Ginger Snap. Combining three simple ingredients – BACARDÍ Superior or Gold, Ginger Ale and lime wedge for garnish – the Ginger Snap is an easy and festive cocktail to make at home, ideal for holiday entertaining.
The BACARDÍ Coquito is available for purchase through their partnership with Cocktail Courier. You can buy a kit with all of the ingredients to make the BACARDÍ Coquito HERE.
