Sweet Summer Sippers From Cruzan

By  August 04, 2009

It’s been a rough week. And it’s only Tuesday. We’re dreaming of sunny weekends, poolside bars,  and deliciously fruity  cocktails. Franky, we’re dreaming about Happy Hour and  Cruzan’s naturally-flavored rums (think coconut, mango, pineapple, and guava!). Here are a few simple and sweet cocktails we can’t wait to wrap our hands around …  Is it Friday yet?!?
