rockfall rum summer

BBQ anyone?

Yeah, yeah we know you’ve all been in your houses and gardens for over a year now but come rain or shine you’ll all still be planning to have friends over for a BBQ…so you’ll be in need of some drinkspiration.

Get your mixology on

Beer, prosecco (champers if you’re feeling flush) and wine are easy serves but it’s cocktails for the win when it comes to making an impact. So many people worry about making anything more complicated than a G&T but so many cocktails are incredibly simple and will help you rock those #mixologist vibes.

Impress with spiced rum

I bet you know what I’m going to say here…gin is the best and most versatile spirit for cocktails…just kidding! Of course it’s not. It’s good for cocktails, as is vodka, but rum (in our humble opinion) is the spirit you need in your life for your home bartender needs. More specifically it should be Rockfall, because the quality of your cocktails is determined by the quality of your spiced rum. You don’t want to stick any old rubbish in your award winning, head turning cocktails. You want everyone to still be talking about your cocktail party for years to come.
