Strangelove Dark and Stormy
You will need 60ml Brix Spiced Rum, 180ml of StrangeLove Hot Ginger Beer, one muddled lime wedge, and a dehydrated slice of lime. Now put a lime wedge in a glass and muddle it (smack it with a stick). Pour the Brix Spiced Rum in it and add the StrangeLove Hote Ginger Beer and stir it carefully. Add some ice to it and garnish it with dehydrated lime slices. Do not let your guests think any less of you. Wing it if you need to but show your best.

The Smoking Barrel
Pour 45ml of spiced rum into a glass and add ice to it. Squeeze two lime wedges in that, fill it with Strangelove Smoked Cola and mix it all like you mixed your drinks in college days.

Let your devil cause turmoil because this drink is worth it.
Make the most out of every party with your signature drinks. However, if this is a party for one, make sure that you bring your A-game because you deserve your love and care the most. You have worked hard, and you deserve all the time off and extra care, even if it is from you. Always remember, self-love is one of the purest forms of love.
Pro tip: Try making only your drinks with that extra oomph. Otherwise, you will turn into a bartender at every party.
