Zacapa Hits the Links

While the weather is certainly frightful in many parts of the USA, many of us still can’t stop dreaming of the sun, sand, and… grass? Golfers may need to travel a bit further than normal during the winter months to keep their game strong, but MKTG INC and Zacapa Rum were able to join some of them as they practiced their craft in sunny Arizona in December.

From December 3-5, 225 players from Troon Privé clubs nationwide came together at the Gallery Golf Club in Marana, AZ, to compete for the coveted title of Troon Cup champion. Against a dramatic backdrop of sandy deserts, blue skies and Saguaro cacti, Zacapa Rum was on hand from beginning to end, with tastings, cocktails and on-course sampling courtesy of our staff and talented National Brand Ambassador Robert Pallone.

So what’s a great cocktail to try when you’re out on the green? We suggest:

The Zacapa 23 Ginger
1.5 oz Zacapa 23 Rum
4 dashes Angostura bitters
5 mint leaves
Half of a fresh squeezed lemon
.75 oz Demerera simple syrup (or regular simple syrup)
Fever Tree Ginger Beer

Stir rum, mint, lemon, and simple syrup together. Pour over ice, add 4 dashes of bitters and top with Ginger Beer. Enjoy!
