Nothing comes more quickly to mind when warmer weather comes around than gathering with friends and sharing a few laughs over some great cocktails. But who needs warmer weather to have a great cocktail party? Bring the warmth to you by hosting the perfect evening affair for all of your invited guests with Oscar de la Renta’s signature Dominican Rum Punch. It pairs well with a spread of crudité, olives, and most any lighter, savory fare. Delightfully sweet, this enchanting and simple libation transports you to the unspoiled beauty of a sun-kissed beach, with powdery white sand and aquamarine waters surrounding paradise.
Which brand of rum is best?
Our favorite types of rum possess a deep amber color and a bouquet filled with notes of orange and grapefruit marmalade. Some others present warm spice aromas of cinnamon, ginger, and notes of brown sugar and chocolate. Much like a good wine – try a few and you will find the one that is perfect for you. There is a smoothness to fine rum that’s accentuated by its rich flavor.
Now, whatever your rum selection for this cocktail, you will want to find an aromatic product made from sugar cane. Many rum experts suggest that the use of sugar cane instead of molasses lends a particularly refined character to the rum – it also gives it a lovely, balanced body.
Oscar de la Renta’s Rum Punch is a blend of a few simple, fresh ingredients that captures the essence of the Caribbean wonderfully. Enjoy it in your royal Oscar de la Renta glass, and take a sip of sunny paradise.
