The Christmas holiday season is a great time to enjoy parties and other social gatherings with friends, family and co-workers.
Cruzan Rum is well known for its great rum taste and a popular spirit to drink alone or in your favorite cocktail. We wanted to share several Cruzan Rum choices to enjoy at your next party or give as a holiday gift.
Cruzan Black Strap (For the Home Bartender):
With a dark and aromatic taste profile, Cruzan Black Strap is reminiscent of classic navy rums of the U.S. Virgin Islands, and offers a richer taste and color than traditional rums. For the cocktail connoisseur who can’t get enough of classic rum cocktails such as hurricanes or coladas, adding a dash of Cruzan Black Strap as a floater adds a premium touch.
Cruzan Single Barrel (For the Bourbon Enthusiast):
Created with a blend of vintage rums that have been aged for up to 12 years, this well-rounded, mellow and full-bodied rum has a distinctive taste that is best enjoyed when sipped neat or on the rocks. Gift it to a fan of bourbon or whiskey who is looking to explore a new trend in spirits.
Cruzan Peach (For the Snowbound):
Perfect for someone who is eagerly awaiting the return to warm weather. With the sweet taste of juicy, ripe peaches, Cruzan Peach Rum will transport them to memories of warmer days and tropical locales. Mix it in with a mojito to bring the classic recipe up a notch.
