Watermelon Daiquiri
Rating: Unrated
New!
Preparing fresh watermelon juice gives this blend-and-sip cocktail from Ten to One distillery CEO/founder Marc Farrell a burst of cool melon flavor, though fresh, high quality store-bought juice will work here, too. It’s a rum drink for margarita lovers, with a salted rim that balances tart lime juice with sweet agave syrup and just as easily makes 1 drink with leftover juice as it does 8 for a crowd.

White Rum and Aperol Spritz
Rating: Unrated
New!
Mildly spicy poblano liqueur and tangy passion fruit liqueur add delicious complexity to this white rum–spiked Aperol spritz from Ten to One distillery CEO/founder Marc Farrell. Boozy heat from white rum gives a pleasant bite to a bubbly summer staple. Choose your fizz: use sparkling water to let the spirits and liqueurs shine through, or use a splash of sparkling wine to tame the tart piquancy of the drink for a mellower sip.
Rum Negroni
Rating: Unrated
New!
Ten to One distillery CEO/founder Marc Farrell's Rum Negroni takes the classic bitter drink in a refreshingly fruity direction. Teetering between sweet and bitter, Gran Classico Bitter’s 25 aromatics add warmth and depth to this citrusy drink, and a twist of fresh grapefruit peel perfumes each sip, highlighting the floral, clean finish of white rum.
Coconut Mojito

Homemade coconut-mint syrup lends cool, quenching freshness to this lime-kissed, delightfully effervescent mojito. Blanching and shocking the mint leaves before infusing them into the syrup preserves their bright color. Use leftover syrup for a whole batch of cocktails and mocktails, stir some into freshly squeeze lemonade, or drizzle it over sliced fresh fruit for a refreshing summer treat. Ten to One distillery CEO/founder Marc Farrell, who shared this recipe, likes to use it as a vehicle for Ten To One’s White Rum, a blend of Jamaican pot-still rum and Dominican column-still rum with zesty flavor, and notes of jasmine and honeysuckle.
Black Manhattan
Rating: Unrated
New!
Marc Farrell of Ten to One Rum, who wants to introduce the Caribbean’s history, heritage, and culture into people’s understanding of rum, shared the recipe for this rich and layered riff on the Manhattan, which shows off the smooth caramel and butterscotch flavors from dark rum. Pairing rum with the soft herbal notes of Averna Amaro Siciliano, which is sweeter than typical amaro, a few dashes of bitters, and a sweet Maraschino cherry, gently mellows the alcohol, making this simple stirred cocktail balanced, not bracing.
