This Rum Moscow Mule is a quick switch from the classic with subbing out the vodka for the rum. Makes this a rich and darker sip than the original! Whtie rum is recommended, but I think aged would be lovely in this mix!
This White Wine Sangria with Rum is accompanied by fresh fruits including strawberries, green apples, mango and nectarines. A bit of mint, fresh lemon juice and apple juice make for a fresh and fruity sip. This is great on this list of Summer Rum Cocktails because of the ease of entertaining with a pitcher recipe!
This Rum Punch is so easy to make, and is actually a combo of rum and vodka! But the coconut flavors play so well with the lemon soda topping grapefruit and pineapple juices for a great tropical drink!
This Rum Swizzle cocktail is a tropical bit of flavor from orange juice and pineapple juice! Using a split base of dark rum and white rum, and a touch of grenadine and lime juice, this tropical drink is a must make!
