BACARDI® Mixers Party Time!

A while back I was asked to throw a BACARDI® Mixers Party around a custom-made drink just for me. Let’s just say they didn’t have to ask me twice. I was BEGGING to be on board! Not only am I a HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE BACARDI® fan, (I couldn’t name another brand of rum if I tried), but the Mojito is my favorite summer drink hands down! Truth be told, I never order a Mojito in a restaurant, because nine times out of ten they just don’t get it right, you know? You have to loooooooove the Mojioto, give it the attention it deserves! So the Mojito’s I love the most are the ones made right at home, because I know they’re going to be tasty.

BACARDI® Mixers asked me what my favorite drink was, and then asked some questions about my personality. A couple weeks later I was given my very own custom drink, and I about did a cartwheel because good grief MY (yes, mine) cocktail looked amazing!

Before the party even began, I knew the respectable thing to do was to have a Mojito trial run. You never know if you’re going to like it, right? So a couple days before the big event, I Instagrammed my “trial run,” and knew I had a hit on my hands! Let me introduce you to the Carefree Caribbean Mojito!

Don’t let the ingredients scare you – this combination is insane! (They are BACARDI® Mixers wizards). For my guests, I decided to make up a huge batch (a total of 2.5 GALLONS of mojitos) and highlight my cocktail for all my friends. What I loved about this drink was how EASY it was to throw together (even 2.5 gallons of it), and how the taste was unbelievable. If you copy this drink card, and make it for your next get-together, you will be the Belle of the Ball. I promise. This drink is that good.

Anyway, I invited all my closest friends, and spent about 2 weeks getting ready for the big event. The husband and I painted the outdoor ceiling, bought a bunch of fun decorations, planted some flowers, and went nuts! A couple of my friends and family put out a huge spread of food, and we were in for an exciting night! I made up a couple custom pieces, including this card inviting everyone to share how much they love me my drink on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, using the hashtags @bacardimixers #bacardimixers99.

The menu was planned around my signature cocktail, the Carefree Caribbean Mojito. We had Jerk Chicken Sliders, Tres Leches Cake, Pepperjack Cheesesticks, and much, much more. What better food could a girl ask for?

After we drank the entire batch of Mojitos, I was provided with gift bags to give away! We gave everyone a raffle ticket, and drew numbers! 10 lucky winners won a gift bag full of goodies, including BACARDI® Mixers Visors, steel BACARDI® Mixer muddler’s, drink recipe booklets, and much, much more! I love me some giftbags! I attached a copy of my signature cocktail on the outside of each bag, and I know they are going to make it themselves at home!

In all, it’s one of the better parties I’ve ever thrown. It was fun, the drinks were insane, the food was delicious, and it all revolved around BACARDI® MixersBACARDI® Mixers MADE my night. The drink was most definitely the highlight. With the cans of BACARDI® Mixers – you can turn up the notch on any rum drink.

If you haven’t already – and I know you will now – “like” BACARDI® Mixers on Facebook! Every DAY this summer you’ll be provided with a new cocktail idea! One thing I love about BACARDI® Mixers is who would have thought to put these ingredients together – and yet THEY DID – and the results are amazing! This has to be the best mojito I’ve ever had, and I’ve had plenty. No judgment.

You know what else is cool – just like BACARDI® Mixers created a drink FOR ME – based on what I like, they’ll do the same for you! Submit your interests, your tastes, and they’ll come up with a drink for you as well!

Here are all the pictures from my night (except pictures of me which I’ve removed because what the heck was I thinking wearing an orange dress!?)

BACARDI® Mixers is a premium line of non-alcoholic mixers available in 10 oz cans in the frozen juice aisle. With seven easy-to-make flavors to choose from – including Strawberry Daiquiri, Margarita, and Piña Colada – there are endless ways to make your next party come together instantly!
