The new Especial is aged in bourbon casks for a minimum of 2 years then the rum is triple charcoal filtered to remove all of the color and impurities. The process yields an incredibly smooth rum that mixes very well in an upgrade mojito, daiquiri, or even a "bloody rummy". My first impressions are that it will be a step up in any white rum cocktail, but it also does very well as a replacement for vodka in several of the traditional vodka cocktails.
- 2 oz. Brugal Extra Dry Rum
- 1/2 oz. Cointreau
- 1/4 oz. Lime Juice
- 1/2 oz. Cranberry Juice
Introduced at a gala cocktail party in Miami in May, this Brugal Especial offers a great opportunity to create cross over cocktails derived from vodka recipes. Pick up a bottle and put to work in you cocktail "Rum Lab" and see what you can develop with it, I'm sure you'll be really surprised how many vodka drinkers you can switch to rum with this fine new Brugal Especial Extra Dry. ;o)
