With fall around the corner, I’m writing to suggest a story idea for Jetsetters Magazine on 5 cozy cocktail recipes that will make you forget PSLs forever.
To celebrate fall’s return, Candela Mamajuana [www.drinkcandela.com] — the first ready-to-drink premium spiced rum specialty drink from the Dominican Republic — is sharing 5 rum-my recipes to keep you toasty all season.
#1: PUNTA CANA
Named after a popular resort town in the Dominican Republic, a Punta Cana is a tropical resort escape in a glass (aka exactly what we need to get us through fall!) Mix 2 oz Candela Mamajuana with 2 oz passion fruit juice and 1 oz fresh lemon juice, then serve.
Can you handle the heat? To make a Tiguere, mix 3 oz of Candela Mamajuana with 2 oz fresh lemon juice and 1 oz jalepeño-infused syrup. There’s no quicker way to warm yourself up than with a little kick.
#3: ORIENTE CALIENTE
Ready for some adult La Croix? Mix 2 oz Candela Mamajuana with 2 oz of prosecco and 2 oz Yuzu Liqueur (a citrus liqueur). This bubbly treat gives you a little taste of summer when you’re snuggled up in your fall sweaters!
#4: HAPPY ENDING
With fall inevitably comes office sicknesses. Instead of downing Vitamin C, protect yourself with kombucha. Mix 3 oz kombucha with 3 oz Candela Mamajuana for a cold cure you’ll actually want to drink.
#5: OLD FASHIONED, WITH A TWIST
Update this classic drink for fall by substituting rum instead of whiskey, bourbon, or rye. Muddle 1 sugar cube with 2 dashes bitters. Add 2 oz Candela Mamajuana, ice, and an orange twist on the side.
Candela Mamajuana is the first ready-to-drink Mamajuana drink sold in the U.S. Based on a secret Dominican family recipe, the Mamajuana ingredients are infused with premium aged rum and sweetened with organic honey.
Feel free to use these recipes as is. Happy Fall!
