What Mixes Well With A Cream Liqueur? A SomruS Recipe for Every Spirit

Whether you’re a skilled mixologist, or just getting your feet wet mixing new cocktails on your own terms, it can be difficult to know which spirits will blend well with a rum-based cream liqueur, and it’s not always intuitive. Some Scotches work, but very few bourbons do even though they’re both whiskeys. Weird, right? In our own experience, certain spirits don’t play well with SomruS, so we’ve pulled together a handful of our recipes, and the core spirit they blend with so you don’t have to worry about any of the guesswork.

Each one is a sweet blend of SomruS and vivid ingredients, creating a collection of drinks that honor the colors of Holi.

Rum

A Rum-Based Pink Cocktail For Your Valentine – Monk’s Milk

With Monk’s Milk, we’re going back to the basics and doubling down on what works. What does that mean? Well, for starters, we’re adding more rum—which usually helps with romance. From there, we’re accenting one of our signature flavors to an even higher degree with rose syrup and a rose petal garnish.

A Tea Cocktail With Gin: Indian Summer

Sometimes, great things happen when strangers get together. This tea cocktail pairs SomruS, a Michigan distilled floral gin, muddled avocado with one of our core flavors (which also happens to be the most expensive ingredient on earth), saffron.
