Top 5 Rum Cocktails for Summer

1. Frozen Rum Runners

Our favorite way to enjoy the last days of summer.
2 oz Banana Liqueur
4 oz Coconut Rum
2 oz Blackberry Liqueur
2 oz Grenadine
4 oz Pineapple Juice ( or 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks)
4 oz Orange Juice
2 oz Lime Juice
4 cups ice

The most complicated part of this shareable frozen treat is gathering the ingredients. When you have everything on hand, simply mix them in a blender. Add a cherry or a slice of your favorite fruit as a garnish.

2. Strawberry Daiquiri

A classic fruity drink to toast those final days by the pool.
1 tablespoon lime juice
⅓ cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1 pound strawberries, halved
½ cup white sugar
¾ cup spiced rum

First, puree the strawberries and sugar to make a thick slurry. Add the rest of the ingredients and serve over ice. While this isn’t a frozen drink, it is a thick and cool beverage for relaxing on the deck or hanging out with friends by the pool.

3. Bikini Martini

Too simple to be this delicious.
¾ fluid ounce vodka
1 fluid ounce pineapple juice
1 fluid ounce coconut rum
1 tsp grenadine syrup

Shake the rum, vodka, and pineapple juice until blended. Pour into a glass, then add grenadine and top with a slice of your favorite fruit.

4. Hurricane

The only time a summer hurricane is a good thing.
1.5 oz amaretto liqueur
1 oz light rum
1 oz dark rum
6 oz orange juice
6 oz pineapple juice
1 tsp lemon juice

This is one you’ll definitely want to share with your friends. Mix all ingredients and pour over ice. Add a tsp of grenadine and a slice of orange or pineapple for garnish. Who knew a hurricane could be this refreshing?

5. Cherry Bomb

If you like cherry flavor, this rum drink is…well, the bomb.
4 fluid ounces rum
1 liter lime soda
4 fluid ounces grenadine syrup
2 tbsp lime juice
Maraschino cherries (for garnish)

Another simple and shareable delight! Just mix everything together and pour over ice. Garnish with maraschino cherries for added flavor.
