12 Drinks of Christmas. Day #10 Bacardi Is on the New Years Day Menu!

It’s New Year’s Day! Now you can whip things up for cocktails and food courtesy of Bacardi. You will find a ton of recipes here for punches, drinks and food.
For those who need to abstain, I suggest you invest in PURISTA mixes– because they are the best all-natural mixes that can give you the flavor of some great drinks with or without alcohol!

About BACARDI Rums
In 1862, in Santiago de Cuba, BACARDI revolutionized the spirits industry when founder Don Facundo Bacardi began producing his remarkable light-bodied, smooth rum – BACARDI, the world’s favorite premium rum brand. Today, BACARDI Rum is produced in Puerto Rico, following the production legacy set forth by Don Facundo – crafted in a five step distillation process, aged in American white oak barrels, and filtered five times for unparalleled quality and smoothness.
