Beverage Monday. Rum.

Today's beverage is Rum. There are so many different varieties on the market but, Bacardi® is the classic. So today I will feature a new rum drink and a classic. Both refreshing for Summer.

Bacardi® Peach Red Mojito
1 1/2 oz of Bacardi Peach Red Rum
Club Soda
12 Mint Leaves
1/2 peach
Peach Slice
1 Tablespoon Sugar
Place the mint leaves, sugar & peach into a tall glass. Crush them well with a pestle. Add Bacardi Peach Red Rum. Top off with club soda. Stir. Garnish with a peach slice and a sprig of mint.
Nice and peachy.
Mai Tai
1 oz light rum
1/2 oz dark rum
1/2 oz triple sec
6 oz orange juice
6 oz pineapple juice
freshly squeezed lime juice
1 dash grenadine syrup
Place light rum and triple sec in hurricane or tall glass. Add ice and pour over the orange, pineapple and lime juice. Add the grenadine. Then float the dark rum on top, and serve. Garnish with a pineapple and a cherry.
If it's done right it should look like a sunset!!
