With mountains of sweet candy around every scary turn, skip the sweet cocktails and balance your palate with a dry cocktail from Brugal Extra Dry, a crystal-clear blended white rum aged 2 – 5 years in white American oak casks prior to undergoing a triple filtration process. The result is a smooth, dry and refined flavor profile which may be enjoyed neat or on the rocks, as well as in your favorite spooky rum cocktail.
If you’re looking for drink that’s even darker, try concocting a cocktail with Brugal 1888, a rum first aged in American Oak barrels, followed by a second aging in Sherry Oak casks to give it more of a rich, whisky-like profile.
Try Extra Dry in the Daiquiri Noir, which evokes the look of Halloween and the amaro hints at the flavors of fall:
2 oz. Of Brugal Extra Dry Rum
.5 oz. Ramazzotti Amaro
.75 oz. Lime Juice
.75 oz. Simple Syrup
6 Chunks Muddled Pineapple
Dash Angostura Bitters
Muddle pineapple & bitters in a cocktail shaker. Add Brugal, lime juice & simple syrup and shake hard with ice. Fine strain, pour Ramazzotti Amaro into the drink as a float. Garnish with a mint leaf.
With Brugal 1888, try the Spice Cask – a stirred, Old Fashioned-style drink with hints of Cinnamon for a true taste of fall:
2 oz. Brugal 1888
.75 oz. Ramazotti Amaro
.25 oz. Cinnamon Syrup
2 dash Orange Bitters
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Stir all ingredients in an iced cocktail tin. Fine strain over a large piece of ice and garnish with a large orange peel and a maraschino cherry.
