Especially at this time of the year, Diplomatico believes that everything is so busy that you need to step back occasionally to be able to truly appreciate everything that is going on. But, of course, the brand would like to add that when you step back, why not ensure that it’s a sipping rum that’s in your glass?
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva is a blend of exclusive rum reserves aged for up to twelve years, carefully selected by our Master Blenders. Marrying a unique body with excellent balance has made this multi-award-winning rum a reference for connoisseurs and fine spirits lovers throughout the world.
Opening up with aromas of orange peel, toffee and liquorice, it is smooth on the palate and follows on with notes of toffee fudge that offer a seductive, long-lasting finish.
Now you could just pour your favourite sipping rum in a glass, but what’s the fun in that, especially when Diplomatico has a signature serve that they recommend when sipping. They call it DOC (Diplomático, Orange and Cocoa)
- 60 ml Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
- One piece of orange
- Raw cocoa powder unsweetened
Take your orange, cut it in half, cut a slice (around 6mm) and cut it into four identical quarters. Pour a teaspoon of cocoa into a small cup, take the four orange quarter-slices and dip one side in the cocoa powder. Take some rectangular slate, and place your glass on the left. On the right side of the plate, arrange the four orange quarter-slices nicely. You can delicately drop some cocoa powder next to the oranges for those who want more cocoa!
Glass – Old-fashioned or any sipping glass
Ice – Can be enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
Garnish – No garnish needed! Just alternate between a sip of Reserva Exclusiva and a slice of orange with cocoa.
