It's World Rum Day on Saturday 9th July, so naturally we'll be having a Hattiers rum cocktail or two to celebrate.
The brilliant team at Trailer Happiness in Notting Hill have been serving the finest classic and original cocktails with a Tiki twist since 2003 and certainly know their way around a good rum, so when they decided to create a trio of cocktails featuring Hattiers Rum and our good friends over at QUBA, we knew that it was time to get the party started...
The Hattiers Spritz
This cocktail is the epitome of long summer days and is sure to impress your guests. Aperol and Rum? Don't knock it until you try it!
Add rum, Aperol and a squeeze of lime juice to a highball glass with ice and stir.
Top up with equal parts QUBA grapefruit & red sorrel and prosecco.
Garnish with a wedge of torched grapefruit and a sprig of fresh mint.
The Eminence Julep
Looking for a short and clean cocktail? This one's for you.
Press a handful of mint leaves in a julep cup or glass with sugar or simple syrup. You don't need to muddle, just press.
Add 60ml Eminence Blended Aged White Rum.
Top with crushed ice and stir.
Top up with QUBA Lime, Apple & Lemongrass.
Finish with a lime and mint garnish.
The Resolute Mule
Singing with spicy ginger and caramel notes, the Resolute Mule is a refreshing drink. This twist on a classic cocktail provides a flavorful kick from Resolute, our Navy Strength rum.
Add a generous amount of ice to a highball glass.
Add a squeeze of lime and half a teaspoon of sugar.
Add 50ml Resolute Navy Strength Rum (the most important part!).
Top up with QUBA Ginger, Chilli & Pimento Berry.
Add a dash of Angostura Bitters & Stir.
Garnish with a wedge of lime.
