Classic Cocktails Are Even Better with Vizcaya Cask 12 Rum

The simple pleasures in life — an exquisite cigar, a perfectly cooked ribeye, the smooth Vizcaya after a long day of work — are undeniable. Yet there are also moments when cocktails a little more complex are called for, and that’s when you’ll pull a bottle of Vizcaya Cask 12 out of your liquor cabinet. Cask 12 offers the same refinement that you enjoy when you drink Vizcaya VXOP, but its smooth mixability means that it’s easy to combine with other ingredients to create refreshing, classic cocktails. Here are a few favorites to get you started — but don’t be afraid to invent your own drinks using Vizcaya Cask 12. If you hit upon something fantastic, please share it with us!
