With fall right around the corner, we’re gathering some of our favorite bottles and ingredients to mix up seasonal cocktails that will complement the changing leaves.
Rum is one of our favorite spirits to drink during the cooler months, especially when it’s mixed with ingredients like apples and maple syrup. Made with BACARDÍ Rum and the FACUNDO Rum Collection, these two cocktails will help kick off your fall-inspired festivities. They are great for serving at the many upcoming holiday celebrations spent with family and friends, one sensational sip at a time.
