Ten To One Rum: Crafting Excellence and Tradition

When crafting a truly memorable cocktail, the quality of the ingredients is paramount. For the Firework Fizz, we’ve chosen Ten To One Dark Rum as the cornerstone of this patriotic drink.

Founded by Marc Farrell, a Trinidadian entrepreneur, Ten To One is a Black-owned brand that aims to redefine the rum experience by blending tradition with modernity.

Ten To One Dark Rum is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, resulting in a spirit that boasts notes of baking spices, banana peel, and cedar. This complexity adds depth to the Firework Fizz, complementing the sweetness of the grenadine and the zesty brightness of lemon juice. By choosing Ten To One, you’re not only elevating your cocktail but also supporting a brand that champions diversity and innovation in the spirits industry.
