With the Mother’s Day quickly approaching, BACARDÍ and the FACUNDO Rum Collection bring three delicious, and refreshing cocktails for a Sunday brunch with mom –  BACARDÍ Lime Cooler, BACARDÍ Rum Julep, and NEO Fresco. 

The perfect cocktail for your Mother’s Day activities, the BACARDÍ Lime Cooler is easy to make for any Sunday brunch. An easy combination of BACARDÍ’s most refreshing new flavor – BACARDÍ Lime, watermelon liqueur, simple syrup, club soda and a splash of lime juice, the BACARDÍ Lime Cooler is a delicious cocktail that your mom will enjoy all summer long. 

If your mom prefers dark spirits, we recommend the BACARDÍ Rum Julep, made with BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho, mint leaves, sugar syrup and peach bitters, which will have mom feeling like a queen this Mother’s Day.

For the mom with more refined tastes, mix up the NEO Fresco from the FACUNDO Rum Collection. Made with FACUNDO NEO, a delicately balanced blend of medium-to-heavy-bodied rums aged up to 8 years, the NEO Fresco is sure to please your mom’s luxe cravings. The Chareau Aloe liqueur gives the cocktail freshness, and combined with the fruitiness of St. George Raspberry liqueur and lime juice, results in a drinking experience that is both sweet and tart.
