Fizzy Rum Cocktails with Zacapa Rum

best-rum-cocktail

If you missed the National Rum Day celebrated on August 16th, there’s only one way to make it up – with a fizzy drink. For today’s cocktail suggestions we turn to Zacapa Rum, a one-of-a-kind spirit that’s aged 2300 meters above sea level in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. One of the highest ageing facilities in the world produces exceptional flavours, deep aromas and full colours.

Zacapa 23 contains a blend of rums from 6 to 23 years old which makes it a perfect choice for mixing with other spirits and soft drinks. New York City mixologist Lynnette Marrero came up with fun suggestions using the barrel-aged rum in signature cocktails including a tiki drink, daiquiri and fizz.

Enjoy our slideshow of the best cocktails to make with Rum.
