DON Papa Rum, a single island, small batch premium rum that people have been raving about since it was introduced three years ago, is good enough to drink neat or on the rocks. But you can also enjoy it in various ways in the form of cocktail drinks. One of them is The Clover, which is one of the cocktail drinks specially designed by master mixologists Kathryn Eckstein-Cornista and Matthias Cadeac D’Arbaud using Don Papa Rum.
The Clover was the featured cocktail drink during the launch of the Don Papa Rum Art Competition held at The BonBon Club in Makati City last Wednesday, November 11, 2015. I’d like to share with you the recipe, just in case you want to try mixing some cocktail drinks at home for family and friends to enjoy.
The Clover is a European-inspired sweet fruit cocktail reminiscent of the Roaring 1920s, says Matthias.
