This delicious cocktail is a perfect option to serve before the champagne toasts begin this New Year’s Eve. It’s refreshing and, most importantly, easy to make in a big batch so you have a signature cocktail for all your guests to enjoy.
Also fitting, this drink was first created to celebrate Cuban bartenders of the early 1900s – so it’s not only easy and delicious, it’s also topical and will inspire your guests to chat about the U.S. opening relations with Cuba for the first time in 50 years! Alcohol + topical drink theme = great conversation starter ;)
Simply combine the Diplomatico rum, curacao, bitters and lime juice in a glass with ice. Add ginger beer (not sooner or you’ll get a fizzy mess) and garnish with an orange and/or lime.
* 1 1/2 oz. Diplomatico rum
