If you’re invited to one or several New Year’s Eve parties and are at a loss for a host/hostess gift, look no further than Cruzan. Cruzan has several expressions that make great gifts that your host or hostess may just want to crack open to celebrate the night or save later for a special occasion. For your consideration check out these suggestions from Cruzan.
For the bourbon enthusiast host/hostess consider Cruzan Single Barrel. Created with a blend of vintage rums that have been aged for up to 12 years, this well-rounded, mellow and full-bodied rum has a distinctive taste that is best enjoyed when sipped neat or on the rocks. Gift it to a fan of bourbon or whiskey who is looking to explore a new trend in spirits.
For the host/hostess that loves to play bartender consider Cruzan Black Strap. With a dark and aromatic taste profile, Cruzan Black Strap is reminiscent of classic navy rums of the U.S. Virgin Islands, and offers a richer taste and color than traditional rums. For the cocktail connoisseur who can’t get enough of classic rum cocktails such as hurricanes or coladas, adding a dash of Cruzan Black Strap as a floater adds a premium touch.
For the host/hostess that can’t wait for the warm weather to come back consider Cruzan Peach Rum. Cruzan Peach Rum is perfect for someone who is eagerly awaiting the return to warm weather. With the sweet taste of juicy, ripe peaches, Cruzan Peach Rum will transport them to memories of warmer days and tropical locales. Mix it in with a mojito to bring the classic recipe up a notch.
If you happen to be the host at this year’s upcoming New Year’s Eve party don’t forget to add Cruzan to your drink menu and treat your guests to these two yummy cocktails.
