With summer in full swing, weekly BBQs and Pool Parties, you need a good arsenal of cocktails to serve. I love trying new cocktails and rum is my favorite! In my opinion, anything rum touches turns into a magic liquid that flows down my throat and makes me happy and relaxed. There is nothing like sipping a tropical flavored beverage when you aren’t anywhere tropic. With the heat we have been having, it isn’t hard to be transported to another time and place while sipping a delicious tropical cocktail.
