Quick Cocktail Guide: Bacardi Carta Blanca
The go-to rum
Being the world's number 2 best-selling rum brands (after the Tanduay), there isn't much need for explaining what the Bacardi is.
The spotlight is shone on the Carta Blanca bottle which is Bacardi's version of the white rum.
A white rum is usually defined as a light-bodied variant of rum with a soft, sweet taste. Most use cases for white rum will be in light & refreshing cocktails like the Mojito and Daiquiri!
Also- did you know that the first-ever mojito ever made called for the Bacardi Superior white rum?
Bacardi Carta Blanca's Tasting Notes
Nose: Delicate citrus notes
Palate: Clean and dry, slightly sweet with an array of citrus fruits
Finish: Smooth and clean finish with lingering notes of black pepper
Overall: A very clean and delicate rum that is smooth with no alcohol burn. Delicate taste of citrus all round makes it easy on the mouth but no special character to speak of.
Although you can enjoy the Carta Blanca on its own, it really shines when being used in a cocktail! Here are some of the best cocktail recipes for this well rounded rum!
Bacardi & Coke
The most classic way of drinking rum- mixed with coke. It seems foolish for us to share how to make it but we promise that this classic combination will not go wrong!
The recommended amount to mix is 2:1. Two parts of coke for every 1 part of the Bacardi Carta Blanca Rum. A 100ml + 50ml mix is perfect for 1 serving!
We would recommend serving in a highball glass with with ice. Pour the rum in followed by the chilled cola and give the mix a gentle stir.
An amazing cocktail for our sweltering all year round summer heat, the Frozen Daiquiri will cool you right down in the middle of a hot day!
