The tipple for this season: Must-try easy rum cocktails
Here's a list of best rum cocktails

Winter is that time of the year when one seeks to experience some cozy comfort. Our favorite indulgence for this season is rum which with its molasses like sweetness, makes for the perfect drink, when the mercury drops. Monika Alcobev’s cocktail expert; Dushyant Tanwar shares some of the best rum cocktail recipes for this season. He shared that for many Indians, their love affair with rum started and ended with OldMonk, which is full of artificial flavorings and coloring. However, It’s about time to widen the horizons and experience the array of flavors in the rum segment. He recommends the vibrant and punchy Bush Rum which is inspired by the flavors of Caribbean rum shack as it offers the perfect blend of tropical fruits and spices to create some unforgettable cocktails.

The unique red coloured Ashanti Rum, on the other hand, boasts of a perfect blend of hibiscus and ginger with hints of vanilla and roasted honey. It’s not too sharp which is why it’s the best bet for the black mic mac and the Hibiscus fashioned cocktails.
