Traditionally, it is custom to eat sweet pancakes on Pancake Day but as more people are turning towards a vegan diet, you might want to consider replacing the sweet tradition with a tasty savoury, vegan alternative instead.

BACARDÍ Spiced is a versatile drink that can be enjoyed with a classic mixer like cola or poured over ice, both allowing its distinct flavours to shine through.
