Ring in 2017 with this bold cocktail that is “sure to warm even the darkest of sailors’ hearts,” said General Manager Steve Bayusik.
“The cocktail incorporates the rich, bold flavors of the Zaya Rum, drawing on black strap molasses and sweet, earthy spices, with the sweet and spicy note of fresh ginger. Fee Brother’s Bitters lends flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, while the Bitter Truth Xocolatl Mole Bitters adds earthy and smoky notes.”
