Add some pizazz to your cider this Thanksgiving and give your dinner guests the gift of HOT SPICED RUM PUNCH…yes, I did just drool a bit. With the help of Cruzan Single Barrel Estate Rum, you will be the talk of the pilgrims this holiday season when you whip out this delectable drink!

Cruzan Single Barrel Estate Rum is a medium to full bodied, super premium rum with mellow brandy characteristics. First introduced in 1997 (to the US), this warm and tasty liquor has won a bevy of awards – including the WORLD’S BEST RUM (San Francisco World Spirits Competition).  Not that you needed any convincing…you know if I am writing about -it is definitely worth a run on your tongue! I must admit that I don’t fully understand the process of aging and distilling…but I don’t need to. The mellow flavor – deep copper color and smooth persona, well…all I care is that it is in the glass in front of me. Run for the rum…Cruzan Single Barrel Estate Rum, $35.
