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.
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.
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.
This classic Caribbean punch is the perfect cocktail start to any party. It’s the refreshing summer drink that keeps on giving and when made with Rockfall Spiced Rum, you’ll love the citrus, sweet and refreshing combination.
Mix all the ingredients together and pour over ice. You can also bulk mix this drink and store it in your fridge so that it’s nice and cold for those hot summer days and nights. #beachvibes
Did you know that Daiquiri is the name of a beach in Cuba? Mmm beach! Rumour has it the Daiquiri was presented to the masses in the nightclubs of New York (mmm New York) in 1902. A Daiquiri is a sophisticated thirst quencher which is best shaken, not stirred.
Throw all of the above measured ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake to aerate and mix. Pour into a martini glass and enjoy!
This gingery take on the much-loved cocktail with Cuban roots is one of our faves. We visited Cuba over ten years ago and lived on them for ten marvellous days (take us back!!) The classic mojito has a whole range of different recipes, but we thought you might like this one with a little fiery oomph.
Put the mint, lime and sugar into a tall glass and muddle (mash) with the end of a rolling pin or wooden spoon. Add the Rockfall Spiced Rum and some crushed ice. Mix thoroughly and add Ginger Beer to top it up. Minty, gingery, spiced rum bliss!
“If you like piña coladas…” then you’ll love our Rockfall Spiced Rum recipe. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, this drink is pure summer vibes, with it’s fruity and creamy flavour.
Add all of the ingredients and blend with crushed ice. Add the contents to a glass, add umbrellas, maraschino cherries, a chunk of pineapple and sip the night away.
2021 has been another difficult year so while we can, let’s try to relax, unwind, have some fun and enjoy time with friends. Try any of the cocktails we’ve mentioned above and fall in love with a new way to drink Rockfall Spiced Rum.
