We wanted to send our summer interns back out into the world with a wealth of knowledge (and maybe a little buzz - jk, jk) so we had them taste test a few different rum cocktail variations in honor of National Rum Day. The overall winner? Our rum inspired take on the classic fav, Tequila Sunrise!
- Bacardi Silver Rum
- Orange Juice
- and Arizona Fruit Punch
The original Tequila Sunrise calls for Silver Tequila, Orange Juice and Grenadine. We subbed the Tequila for Rum and tested a few different variables to replace the Grenadine. (calories, people!)
Between Arizona Fruit Punch, raspberry flavored coconut water, and pomegranate juice, the favorite by far was the Arizona Fruit Punch.
- Fill cocktail glass to the top with ice
- Pour in an ounce and a half of Bacardi Silver Rum
- Add an ounce of OJ
- Top off with a splash of Arizona Fruit Punch
This super simple cocktail is not only colorful, but refreshing! BONUS: Also great for parties, shared by the pitcher :)
