Bunker down on 12/12/12 (will it be the end of the world?) – with a cocktail from local Dallas mixologist, Amber West.  She has created The Conqueror cocktail, which has elegant flavors from the Ron Abuelo rum alongside an amber cognac, Grand Marnier, honey and lemon juice.

This year, Ron Abuelo has reached out to mixologists across the nation to create specialty cocktails using Ron Abuelo 12 Años – a fine dark aged rum from Panama.

So get ready to bunker down at home and whip up this cocktail to survive 12/12/12 with a toast!
