Cruzan Rum Drinks Making Fall Fabulous!

desktop-cruzan-wp3

Rum’s not just for summer! I’m a Cruzan Rum Collector, and we keep our rum drinks going year-round here during the many occasions when we’re entertaining friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, and wedding groups. I love Cruzan’s “Don’t Hurry” campaign– so perfect for this time of year when the clock seems to be speeding up, the holidays are approaching, and for brides, wedding stress is a very real aggravation. A nice rum drink, hot or cold, is very welcome right now. From my friends at Cruzan Rum:

Master mixologist, Jesse Card, has created three deliciously seasonal cocktails made with the Cruzan Distiller’s Collection, a line of super-premium, blended aged rums that features Cruzan® Estate Diamond® Dark Rum and the new Cruzan® Estate Diamond® Light Rum, along with the popular Cruzan® Single Barrel Rum. Staying true to the spirit of The Don’t Hurry, Cruzan Rum doesn’t rush the aging process, which is why their rums are so amazingly good. It’s all in good taste.
