Atlantico Platino: a Great Mixer

     Yesterday's Rum Lab gave us a chance to enjoy the warmth, smooth flavors, and mixability of Atlantico Platino.     Atlantico Platino combines and plays well with most of the mixes we tried yesterday.    There were a couple of things that it did not particularly blend with, like dry vermouth and pineapple juice in combination.    Atlantico Platino did combine very well with most of the mixes we tried with it.    The warmth and fine taste of the rum came through in all of the cocktails.   

    The Passionate Platino
  • 1 1/2 oz. Atlantico Platino
  • 1 oz. Passoa Liqueur
  • 1 oz. Banana Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. Pomegranate Liqueur
  • 3/4 oz. Cream of Coconut
  • Top-up with Orange Juice
Place all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake until chilled and pour into a Collins glass and garnish with an orange wheel and a cherry.

     The Atlantico Platino came across as a really great up scale white rum for your more sophisticated cocktails, daiquiris, or even rumtinis.    I feel that if your tastes require a smoother, more refined tasting white rum, this one could fill the bill.     ;o)
