4. Grab yourself a glass!
Don’t leave milk and cookies by the fire place for Father Christmas this year, you know he has a more sophisticated pallette than that! I’m sure he’d prefer a rich, smokey, complex 15 year old Gran Reserva Anejo rum from Ron Mulata de Cuba, served over ice with bitters and a citrus twist? Sound more appetising?
