As the temperatures drop and snow fall imminent, there’s no better way to cozy up this winter than by enjoying a cocktail designed to keep you warm and toasty all season long. Oh, and National Hot Toddy Day is totally a thing! I prefer the sweetness of run to bourbon so let's celebrate, shall we?
The Rooibos Toddy, made with FACUNDO EXIMO Rum, blends hot Rooibos tea with HUM liqueur and ginger syrup, emulating the warm and soothing aspects of a traditional toddy recipe. The sweet aroma of FACUNDO EXIMO complements the delicate flavor of the rooibos, making it the perfect companion to watch the snow fall.
For a creamier libation to perk up even the grayest of winter days, enjoy The 8 Day made with HAVANA CLUB Añejo Clásico Rum. Designed to be served hot or cold, The 8 Day combines the oaky hints of vanilla and almond in HAVANA CLUB Añejo Clásico, with the spices of chai tea and coconut milk to create a velvety libation to sip on during those frosty winter months.
