• Rum is the perfect spirit base for a cocktail that will transport your mind to sun, sea and sand. We’ve stuck to an oldie but a goodie for our rum-based cocktail because not only is it delicious but you only need a few ingredients to make it, most of which are probably already in your pantry.


    • 2 parts Don Papa Dark rum
    • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
    • 1 splash of water
    • 1-2 tsp sugar
    • Cubed ice
    • To garnish: Orange peel


    Add the granulated sugar and Angostura Bitters to a rocks glass with a single ice cube. Stir the mix until the ice cube has melted enough to dissolve the sugar. Add another 3 to 4 ice cubes and half of the rum then stir for around 60 seconds. Top up the glass with more ice and add the rest of the rum, then stir for another 60 seconds


    About Don Papa Rum

    We all need a little magic and make-believe at the moment. Crafted with great precision, Don Papa Rum is the spirit of the magical and mystical “Sugarlandia”. Sugarlandia, although not a real place, is inspired by the romance of the island of Negros (where Don Papa is made) and is the spiritual home of Don Papa Rum, a place that echoes the values of those that burnt with passion, honour, bravery, and resilience
