Ron Abuelo Rums has asked 12 mixologists throughout the U.S. to create signature cocktails as a toast to this 2012 holiday season!

This year, since consumers celebrate the occurrence of the same month, date, year as one of the luckiest days of the year, take your pick of Ron Abuelo’s 12 fabulous cocktails (recipes below) and enjoy them on 12/12/12 and throughout the holiday season.  All cocktails were created using Ron Abuelo 12 Años – a fine dark aged rum from Panama – and are inspired by this year being the Year of the Dragon.
