Get Into the Seasonal Spirit With The Cruzan Rum Distiller’s Collection

With fall just around the corner, Male Standard is opening up the conversation that now is the perfect time to acquire a hearty, at-home rum collection. With select choices of light and dark rums available, opening the gateway to an impressive line up of rum based cocktails is easy, and your chances of becoming the neighborhood bartender just got better. Master mixologist, Jesse Card, has created three deliciously seasonal cocktails made with the Cruzan Distiller’s Collection, a line of super-premium, blended aged rums that features Cruzan® Estate Diamond® Dark Rum and the new Cruzan® Estate Diamond® Light Rum, along with the popular Cruzan® Single Barrel Rum. Staying true to the spirit of The Don’t Hurry, Cruzan Rum doesn’t rush the aging process, waiting patiently until each rum is aged to perfection. All three rums are equally enjoyable neat, on the rocks or as a base in classic cocktails, so what are you waiting for?
