This month one of the newest members of the Mystic Wine Shoppe team, who also happens to be a bartender, is sharing his favorite go-to cocktail with us for the April Cocktails of The Month. That’s right, COCKTAILS, Ben is giving us TWO of his favorite cocktails!
First up, the Rum Manhattan Cocktail. Ben loves using the delicious Zaya Rum in many of his creations, and this cocktail he mixed up for us, sure packs a tasty punch.
- 2 oz Dark rum (we love Zaya Rum! It has a mildly sweet aroma followed by vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and oak barrel spices)
- 1 oz sweet vermouth
- 2 dashes bitters
- Stir add an orange twist
Next up, the Contessa Cocktail:
- 1 oz dry vermouth
- 1 oz Plymouth Gin
- 1 oz Aperol
- Stir add a lemon twist
Let us know what you think of these mouth-watering cocktails! Thanks, Ben, for sharing these with us.
