Brugal Extra Dry Today, August 16, is National Rum Day. As we’ve always been a fan of the Brugal Extra Dry since their launch in 2012, we’re sharing some new Brugal cocktail recipes below.

We also invite you to watch a Brugal Extra Dry video from our archive coverage of Tales of the Cocktail.

Brugal Extra Dry is a blend of rums aged 2-5 years exclusively in White American Oak Casks. (former American Whisky, medium toasted). It is aged the same amount of time as Brugal Añejo.

It is then triple-filtered to enhance smoothness and remove the color.
