Cold weather calls for extraspecial cocktails, and nothing hits the spot quite like a toasty rum drink. No, we're not talking about hot buttered rum
but rather a rum-spiked riff on spiced hot chocolate, the cocoa loco. Take your favorite mug off the shelf, and watch John Guilarte, a Flor de Caña rum expert, show us how it's done.
From Flor de Caña
