Last Tuesday, Red Rooster kicked off its new Latin Night with some enchanting tropical-inspired drinks that night. Hispaniola Rums sponsored our first Latin Night and provided many flavored rums for our Latin drink specials. One special drink we offered that night, and turned out to be in high demand, was the Don’s Kiss. This saccharine cocktail uses Don Q Cristal Rum and muddled strawberries for a sweet, yet tropical finish. Don’s Kiss is a good option for those who favor a not-so-strong fruity cocktail; or for anyone who just wants a sweet touch to their night of drinking!
