Mix up your Cinco de Mayo celebrations this year with something different, but just as delish… a margarita made with Rum 44! 

Instead of Tequila, we use Rum 44 as both the base spirit and the mixer! How? We combine our silver Rum 44 with an orange liqueur we made in house using Rum 44! Add some fresh lime juice, and you have an excellent margarita you WON’T find anywhere else.

Available for one day only (5/5) at our Burlington Tasting Room.
