With so much hype about 2012 being the end of days and/or the start of the Age of Enlightenment I’m really surprised that these Don Q Rum drink recipes are the first apocalypse-themed cocktails I’ve come across. I think it’s a pretty clever idea on their behalf. And even though “Don Q Apocalypse Punch” and “Blackbeard’s Rapture” may sound a little intimidating they both appear to be pretty tasty looking drinks.
