Toast to National Rum Day!
By Lauren Kaplan August 16,2012
Turn this year’s National Rum Day into a fire-breathing frenzy with Ron Abuelo’s dragon-inspired cocktails in honor of Chinese astrology’s Year of the Dragon. Spice up the end of August with these juicy cocktails as they’re sure to kick-start any party with a splash of heat that will make you forget that summer’s nearly over. Make the most of these last few days of the purest summer warmth with a Ron Abuelo dragon cocktail in your hand – hopefully the only kind of hangover it’ll cause is one that can keep us cozy (and tan!) well into the fall. Cheers!
2 oz. Ron Abuelo 12 Años
Stir everything together in a mixing glass filled with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass with half a rim of fresh cracked black pepper and course ground salt. Garnish with a lemon twist.
1 ¾ oz. Ron Abuelo 12 Años
Put all ingredients into shaker tin and shake vigorously to make sure the liquid is very cold. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a lemon peel.
