Rum Cocktails Celebrating 2018 in Style - Easy Drinks for Millennial Entertaining


Hosting a New Year's Day party or would just like some wonderful ideas for some new, beautiful and refreshing mixed cocktails to start the new year? Read on for several elegant but easy drinks to mix up for your guests not only on January 1st but whenever you host an event in your home.

Bumbu Rum is the secret ingredient in two delicious drinks I'd like to share with you: The D6 Cocktail (including pomegranate juice one of my personal fave sweet drink mixers) and The Freaky Tiki, a unique twist on the classic Mai Tai and one of the Top 10 searched cocktails on Google in 2017  (featuring Compari and bitters for a cocktail with more bite). 

Both these would be perfect to offer as rum based refreshments for just about any special ocassion to take entertaining to the next level with simple mixed drinks.
