I am a big rum lover, and so appreciate the range that the spirit offers—from a fine cognac style to sweeter, more intense offerings. This prompted me to find fellow rum lovers and get some unique and complex cocktails with exotic and rare rums.
The mixologists in this story have a special affection for rum and have collected rare bottles in their travels. They shared some of their favorite cocktails, which you can link to below. Hobnob also offers a downloadable pdf of all the cocktails, for your bartending pleasure, scroll to the bottom.
