Listen to Episode 83: Diplomático Rum
This week, I’m kicking off the third(!) season of the Bit by a Fox Podcast with one one of my all time favorites – Diplomático Rum from Venezuela. I spoke with Master Distiller Nelson Hernández as well as National Brand Ambassador Emmanuel Pena about what makes Diplomático so special, the radical sustainability efforts that have been implemented throughout their community, and how the business is able to successfully navigate in the midst of a country in turmoil.
This week’s featured cocktail is a Watermelon Daiquiri with Diplomático Planas White Rum:
2 oz Watermelon Juice
2 oz Diplomático Planas White Rum
1/2 oz Simple syrup
1 oz Lime juice
Pour all ingredients into shaker with ice cubes. Shake well. Strain in chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a watermelon wedge.
