Fall is here and we’re savoring the very last of our sweet summer cocktails, but that doesn’t mean an end of the libation-filled festivities. For your next soirée, create a fall-inspired sip with a touch of refinement in celebration of National Rum Punch Day on September 20th.
Although we know rum as our trusted base for our daiquiris and Cuba Libres, Caliche provides a unique depth and superior quality to complement a variety of seasonal cocktails. Created by a sixth-generation rum maker, Caliche is a sustainably produced versatile spirit infused with a defining depth and character. Unlike most white rums on the market, Caliche is made from a blend of four different aged rums. Distilled five times, the spirit offers a crisp rum flavor with notes of vanilla, citrus and oak, providing a modern and delicious twist to redefine how we enjoy an aged white spirit as a year-round staple.
In addition to our crave-worthy rum punch recipe, please see below for recipes incorporating rich flavors of port wine and coffee to enjoy during the cooler temps.
