Summer arrived early in Maryland with an 80+ degree afternoon in March. It seemed the perfect time for a nice fruity rum drink. For lack of a better name, I simply call this Suzy's Fruity Rum Drink.
2 ounces Cruzan Aged Rum (or light rum of your choice)
2.5 ounces Cranberry/Pomegranate Juice Blend (or Cranberry Juice Cocktail)
2.5 ounces Pineapple Juice
1 ounce Orange Juice
Place 6-8 large ice cubes in a Boston Shaker. Add ingredients, cover with pint glass and shake well. Pour into festive glass of your choice and enjoy. Spice it up with a garnish of fresh berries (mmm, blackberries) or a pineapple wedge.
For a cooler (frozen) twist, make it an Irie Colada: double the ice, add 2 oz. coconut milk (or Coco Lopez if you want it really sweet), and blenderize. Top it with a Myers Dark Rum floater. You'll be feeling irie before the first one is done!
The Running Rabbit lived in Miami a long time and spent time in Barbados, the Bahamas, and Jamaica--she knows her fruity rum drinks very well. Hope you enjoy!
