BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro: A Caribbean Spirit Fit for Fall

 

When you think of rum, does the sound of steel drums and the smell of sandy shores come to mind? The original white rum creators and leaders of rum culture for generations, BACARDÍ is looking to replace that image with something a little more elevated than your typical beachy cocktail that’s perfect for sipping any time of year. Part of its new portfolio of premium rums and comprised of four expertly crafted barrel-aged liquors, BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro is barrel-agree for a minimum of four years, making it ideal for elevated cocktails such as El Presidente and Cuatro Mismo.

BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro has a beautiful golden apricot hue and boasts notes of mild vanilla, toasted oak, clove and honey. Its profile is driven by oak contribution and highlights the smoothness throughout the aging process. The Cuatro Presidente is made from 1.5 parts BACARDÍ Cuatro, .75 parts Martini & Rossi Rosso, .25 parts Orange Curaco, and 1 bar spoon of Grenadine. Stirred together and served cold, the cocktail is the perfect mixture of spice and citrus for an October evening. 

If that’s too many ingredients, the Cuatro Mismo combines two parts BACARDÍ Alejo Cuatro and four parts club soda, served in a highball with ice and a lemon wedge. The understated mixture puts the spirit on center stage—allowing imbibers to savor the oaky smoothness. No sandy shore, coconut, or pineapple in sight. Cheers!
