The FACUNDO Rooibos Toddy, a winter warmer made with FACUNDO EXIMO Rum – is perfect for a cozy Valentine’s Day by the fire with your significant other, or for impressing your date.
No Valentine, no problem – the HAVANA Café cocktail, made with HAVANA CLUB Añejo Clásico, is a great libation for a night out on the town with friends.
I also have some fun options from BACARDÍ – one for Galentine’s Day, pink-colored, and big batch (great for parties), as well as a spin on the Old Fashioned, perfect for anyone who loves a twist on a classic cocktail.
