In honor of the new Disney’s The Jungle Book movie coming out April 15, we’ve created a Jungle Book-inspired cocktail called Bagheera, a Rum & Mexican cola featuring Ron Barceló Rum, Smirnoff Iced Cake Vodka, Jarritos Mexican Cola, and Cinnamon garnish.
This is a wonderful play on the traditional Rum and Coke. This time, our rum, makes a proper and polite acquaintance of Mexican-style cola, and there's also the flirty sweetness of Iced Cake flavored vodka. The cocktail is garnished with a cinnamon stick and well, yeah it all comes together quite nicely.
While we wanted something dark and powerful like Bagheera, this Rum and Coke variation is great for Mexican holidays or an ideal cocktail served with Mexican- or Latin American-inspired foods.
