This Cranberry Vanilla Rum Smoothie is like Christmas in a cocktail glass. Who said you couldn’t enjoy a smoothie in the winter?
This post is for 21+. Please drink responsibly.
It’s turning colder around these parts. Here in St. Louis, as of writing this post, we have dipped down into the low 30’s at least once. Does that stop me from blending up a smoothie occasionally?
This Cranberry Vanilla Rum Smoothie is definitely for the adults, but you could leave the rum out for a kid-friendly batch.
Sweet & Tart combine in this Cranberry Vanilla Rum Smoothie, making it a delicious cocktail to serve at your holiday parties. And don’t think you’re going to freeze.
That rum adds just the right amount of ‘warm up’ as you enjoy sipping these with friends and family.
Get creative with your cocktails, and try out a flavored rum if you would like. And you don’t have to use a clear rum, but the clear rum preserves that beautiful red cranberry color.
While testing this recipe for the post, we tried it with several different kinds of rum. We loved traditional clear rum, but you know what was even more delicious?
Try it with some coconut rum. It was like tart and sweet and kind of tropical. Delicious I tell you!
It may be Winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a Smoothie Cocktail and this delicious Cranberry Vanilla Rum Smoothie is the perfection winter cocktail. The flavors of the season all together.
