The Star of Autumn, made with FACUNDO NEO Rum, deliciously blends the tartness of apples and sweetness of maple syrup with the warmth of rum to create a concoction that exemplifies the flavors of autumn, making this cocktail the perfect addition to any Thanksgiving menu.

Easy to make at home, this refined cocktail is a great accompaniment to pumpkin pie or to savor after dinner, once you’ve had your fill of turkey and stuffing.

FACUNDO NEO, from the luxury FACUNDO Rum Collection, is an expertly balanced blend of medium-to heavy-bodied rums aged up to 8 years, filtered over activated carbon to remove any color. The smooth and sweet tasting notes of the rum perfectly complement the Applejack and maple syrup.
