Today is October 1st and that means it’s time for a delicious fall-weather cocktail. Try this one.
If you thought rum was something only to be used in a frozen summer cocktail – think again. In-season apples help to keep cocktails fresh for fall days and the dry flavors of Brugal Extra Dry Rum allow all of the delicious autumn flavors to shine through.
To get in the fall spirit with rum, mix up a High & Dry cocktail. You’re going to love it.
