50  /  the tasting panel  /  november 2014 SEASON'S GREETINGS B elieve it or not, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and once it's passed (and we've digested), it'll be time to kick the holiday shopping, carol singing and cocktail drinking into full reindeer trot(tle)! Making things a little bit easier for consumers—those looking for delicious cocktails and the perfect gift alike—RumChata continues its flavorful holiday tradition with their seasonal gift box. The RumChata Holiday Gift Box includes an exclusive bonus RumChata thermal tumbler, a limited-time coupon—good for 50 percent off purchases at their online Island Store—and of course, a bottle of the premium, real-dairy cream liqueur that has proven its versatility and drinkability to mixologists far and wide. RumChata quickly rose to "call brand" status after its initial release just over four years ago, and today, it's seen the inside of many a unique and delectable cocktail. RumChata's blend of vanilla, cinnamon and sugar with five-times-distilled Caribbean rum makes it particularly favorable toward cocktails that bring the flavors of the holidays straight to the palate. Mixing perfectly with the season's cold weather traditions such as hot chocolate, eggnog and coffee, RumChata's holiday gift box comes with flavor-favorite drink and food recipes—the RumChata Gingerbread Martini (recipe below) sounds like the gift that keeps on giving! Other cocktail highlights include the RumChata Pumpkin Pie Martini, Nutchata and Cinnamon Bun cocktails. It looks like those looming holiday parties just got a lot less daunting— thanks to RumChata you're guaranteed to be on Santa's "nice list" this year! Rum, Rum Rudolph!
