Seven Cracking Kraken Rum Recipes For The Festive Season

Summer has hit and although for much of Australia, it's been a mild start, that hasn't stopped the festive season kicking into gear... 'tis the season and all.

To celebrate the festiveness, the people at Kraken Rum have released a bunch of summer rum cocktail recipes that quite frankly, have us thinking about a warm summer's night with said cocktail in hand.

Speaking of which, their people tell us that there's a limited-edition Kraken Ceramic bottle on offer for purchase this Christmas, which will please anyone who thinks these bottles are a work of art on their own.
