Cruzan Cocktails to Get Your Summer Sailing

By  July 13, 2012

Beating the heat isn’t just about keeping cool; it’s about looking cool while doing it. Instead of sweating it out in the sun all day, chill out with a few custom cocktails while you relax poolside or on the beach and watch the sunset.

Cruzan Beach Umbrella

1 part Cruzan Orange Rum
1 1/2 parts Cruzan Aged Rum
1 part orange juice
1/2 part lime juice
1/2 part Simple Syrup
Cruzan Blackstrap Rum Float

Shake these ingredients up for 20 seconds and pour over rocks for an elevated rum punch experience. Add a Cruzan Blackstrap Rum Float on top and garnish with a bit of cinnamon for the perfect finishing touch.

Cruzan Chocolate Covered Cherry

2 parts Cruzan Black Cherry Rum
1 part Cruzan Vanilla Rum
1/2 part chocolate syrup
1 part milk
Splash of Grenadine

While your milkshake may bring all the boys to the yard, this recipe will bring out the girls, too. Blend this chocolatey concoction with 1/2 a cup of ice until smooth and pour into a chilled glass. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and add the requisite cherry on top for a nod to this summertime standard.

Pour up, enjoy, and remember: beating the heat in moderation is always in style.
