Shake things up, anytime, anywhere.
Having your own bar means you can be ready at any moment, rain or shine, to enjoy delicious cocktails – all you need is some BACARDÍ rum and a few bits of kit to get the good times rolling. From fruity cocktails for BBQ’s to luxurious sips, we have a drink to cater to any occasion.
First, the set-up. Cocktail shakers are a must to ensure you get your drink the perfect temperature. Then the jigger, to guarantee the ratios are perfect.
And of course, the all-important glass. Whether you prefer a chilled coupette, a high glass, or something in between, there’s a glass to suit your style.
For that extra pro-tip, keep some extra fruit on hand for a garnish. It’ll add that final dose of flavour as well as some extra jazz to your cocktail.
SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE RUMS
Now you’re good to go. Below are our favourite BACARDÍ picks alongside some tasty serving suggestions for the easiest cocktails to make at home.
With these on hand, you’ll always be ready for when friends come over and you can impress them with your new bar skills and delicious drinks.
Here are a selection of some simple cocktail ideas that use our classic rums.
Perfectly versatile for mixing, BACARDÍ Superior is the hero to many cocktails we know and love today such as the famous Mojito and the Daiquiri. If you’re having a big party and want jugs of cocktail ready for a large serve, we highly recommend the Rum Punch for an easy, effortless win that will be a guaranteed hit with guests.
Fancy a tropical twist to your drink? Try our new BACARDÍ Coconut for that ultimate Caribbean flavour. The ideal blend of real coconut and white rum pairs perfectly with many mixers to suit your taste buds – why not try pineapple juice, cola, or soda? Or put it in your Piña Colada or Coco Colada Spritz for that ultimate holiday taste from the comfort of your home.
A new addition to the BACARDÍ family and a must have in your home bar is BACARDÍ Spiced. Made with aged rum and a hint of smokiness from American oak barrels, it brings a caramel flavour to the palate which mixes perfectly with cola. Another option is to try it with ginger ale for that little twist. A delicious treat for summer days, but also great for a bit of winter warmth.
Aged rum adds a beautiful layer of complexity to any drink – the perfect sip and savor in the comfort of your home. So, if you fancy an elevated experience, go that extra step with our premium aged rums.
BACARDÍ AÑEJO 4
Fancy a refined mixable rum? BACARDÍ Añejo 4 is the perfect one for you. Aged under the Caribbean sun for a minimum of 4 years, this flavourful rum is golden in colour and unique in taste. On the surface, notes of vanilla come through, followed by intense honey – a natural when it comes to making one of our favourite serves, the Cuatro Highball.
BACARDÍ RESERVA 8
Sometimes you have to raise the bar and nothing does it better than the complex deep and layered flavour of BACARDÍ Reserva 8. Our original premium-aged rum is a recipe from 1862 and was kept in the BACARDÍ family for years. Now it’s available for the world to enjoy. It’s exceptional neat but also makes a delicious Ocho Old Fashioned.
