R&B singer Bruno Mars created nine different SelvaRey Rum cocktails to pair with each song on his new album Silk Sonic.
Bruno Mars is no virgin when it comes to pairing expensive cocktails with his music and hits. He served SelvaRey rum cocktails at the 24K Magic Tour wrap party at the Forum outside LA in 2017.
A press release from the rum brand SelvaRey reads, “Fans can sip while they jam with the same dancing juice the Silk Sonic duo will be sipping themselves in celebration of their new album launch.”
Among the cocktails on the list:
Bruno Mars’ version of an espresso martini, designed to be paired with track number seven, “777.”
The recipe includes:
1 ½ oz. SelvaRey Chocolate Rum,
1 oz. espresso,
¾ oz. coffee liqueur
¼ part Crème de Menthe.
SelvaRey Chocolate is a full bodied, five-year-old rum infused with natural chocolate, and the bottle was the first flavored spirit to win the prestigious Chairman’s Trophy at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge. It also received the highest rating for any flavored spirit in the history of The Tasting Panel, with a score of 95 Points.
Other drinks include:
“Cadillac Mojito”, designed to be paired with the album’s intro track;
“Coquito”, a sweet and creamy cocktial paired with “Leave the Door Open”
“Owner’s Reserve on the Rocks,” SelvaRey’s 40% ABV Owner’s Reserve aged rum over ice. Mars suggests sipping on that drink while listening to track number three, “Fly As Me.”
SelvaRey says its Owner’s Reserve rum was hand-selected by Mars from the cellars of Master Blender Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez. The sipping rum combines 15-year and 25-year-old blends, which produce aromas of caramelized brown sugar, pipe tobacco, sherry, and orange peel, while finishing with silky notes of baked apple crumble and roasted Brazil nut.
