Rum News: Copalli Rum Launch Its Winter Daiquiri Series

Here is the final installment of The Daiquiri Series launched this year by Copalli which features seasonal twists on the classic drink. You can check out the other recipes here and here as well as a full review of the Copalli White where you can learn more about the brand.

The Daiquiri might not be counted as a festive-ish drink (although I will drink it all year round), but with a little bit of tweaking it can easily become a worthy drink to have while listening to Christmas carols.

Belizean craft rum makers Copalli Rum partnered with influential industry people and cocktail connoisseurs in order to create these wintery concoctions:

The serves feature classic warm spices such as cinnamon & nutmeg and use as the base the Copalli Cacao Rum or the Copalli Barrel Rested Rum.
