Cruzan Velvet Cinn Horchata with Rum

Cruzan Rum is made from tropical rainwater and high-quality molasses and is distilled to be the cleanest-tasting rum on the market. Crafted by Cruzan Master Distiller Gary Nelthropp, whose family has been making rum on the island of St. Croix for generations, Cruzan Velvet Cinn stands out among other horchatas. In addition to containing Cruzan Rum, it combines the flavors of bakery cinnamon and rich dairy for a smooth and creamy combination reminiscent of cinnamon toast. Velvet Cinn also has a higher proof than others in the category.

Horchata is a milky drink that originates from Mexico and is especially popular when mixed with rum. Cruzan Velvet Cinn takes the naturally sweet flavor a step further by adding a robust and lingering taste of cinnamon. Cruzan Velvet Cinn can be enjoyed on its own, mixed in a shot or in a cocktail. Jesse Card, Cruzan’s Master Mixologist, created the following recipes to introduce the new flavor:

Cruzan Cinnful Cherry
3/4 parts Cruzan Velvet Cinn Horchata with Rum
1/2 parts Cruzan Black Cherry Rum

Combine all over ice, stir, pour into shot glass.

EFFEN Salted Caramel Vodka

It took something special to create a flavor as versatile-as tricky, if you will-as the new EFFEN® Salted Caramel. Beyond its delicious taste (spicy with a touch of heat faint caramel), Salted Caramel balances sweet and salty flavor cues, making it perfectly mixable in cocktails that are sweet or savory.

EFFEN® Caramel Apple Crisp
2 parts EFFEN® Salted Caramel Vodka
1 part DeKuyper® Red Apple Schnapps
2 parts Apple Cider
1 part Lemon Sour

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

JDK & Sons Crave Chocoalte Truffle Liqueur

Velvety, rich, and exquisitely decadent, JDK & Sons™ Crave Truffle is the perfect drink variety for chocolate fanatics. It starts with a blast of deliciously sweet chocolate and subtle notes of vanilla, then closes with a delicate balance of vanilla and bittersweet chocolate.

Sparkling Chocolate Truffle
1 part JDK & Sons™ Crave Chocolate Truffle Liqueur
1/2 part JDK & Sons™ O3 Premium Orange Liqueur
2 dashes Fee Brother’s® Cherry Bitters
1 Sugar Cube

In a chilled champagne flute, drop in the sugar cube and dash with bitters. Add liqueurs in a cocktail shaker over ice and shake. Strain into the champagne flute and top with sparkling wine. Garnish with a cherry dropped into the glass.

Sauza Sparkling Margarita

Sauza’s brand new, ready-to-serve sparkling margarita is made with real tequila, and comes in Original Lime, Mango Peach and Wild Berry flavors. Its effervescent, sweet and tart lime aroma is just like the original margarita. It has a smooth, sweet/tart lime and fresh agave taste with a medium-bodied, clear and pleasant citrus finish.
