ORLANDO, Fla., July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Seasons 52, the highly acclaimed fresh grill and wine bar restaurant, today announced it is partnering with ATLANTICO to provide two signature cocktails featuring the spirit's Reserva and Platino rums. ATLANTICO Rum partner and international music sensation, Enrique Iglesias, personally introduced the ATLANTICO Rum to Seasons 52.
"I am excited that ATLANTICO Rum has become part of the Seasons 52 family," said Iglesias. "One of my favorite restaurants is joining with my passion, ATLANTICO Rum, to create two signature cocktails."
Available exclusively at Seasons 52 throughout the summer, the Watermelon Refresher is made with ATLANTICO Platino, fresh watermelon, and agave nectar; the Strawberry Lemon Euphoria is made with ATLANTICO Reserva, fresh strawberry, lemon juice, lemon wedges and mint.
While most rums are produced using either molasses or cane juice, ATLANTICO rums are produced using both, providing the highest quality product. The hand-crafted Platino is an incredibly smooth and flavorful light, white rum that can easily be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in select cocktails. It is clean with notes of citrus and vanilla. Reserva is a more complex rum with hints of toffee and oak and is aged between 6-15 years, using cane juice and molasses, aged in separate barrels for three years, then blended together and aged for another two years, and finished by a third aging process known as the "solera" method. Once the rums reach the peak of perfection, they are removed from the barrels and bottled by hand.
"Enrique is a great supporter of Seasons 52," said Stephen Judge, president of Seasons 52. "We are thrilled to add ATLANTICO to our beverage program that always offers guests something new to discover."
