Ring in the holiday festivities this season with two cocktails from the FACUNDO Rum Collection and BACARDÍ Gran Reserva line.
EXIMO Noir is 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.
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 made with BACARDÍ 8 Años, mixed with Prosecco, mint leaves, fresh lime juice, simple syrup and Angostura bitters.
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.
