Rum Running Away

To celebrate the fact that Columbus discovered the new world, it was only fitting to kick off the holiday weekend with a truly worldly cocktail made from a truly historic liquor.

Today we celebrate NATIONAL RUM DAY!

Any day that celebrates any alcohol is generally a good day in my books, but the fact that it’s a celebration of all things rum, makes it so much more perfect! I’ll just overlook the fact that it isn’t technically rum day….

Today we salute all things Rummy!

Here’s a super easy recipe for the simple and delectable – Rum Runner!

1 oz Spiced Rum
0.25 oz Blackberry Liqueur
0.25 oz Creme de Banana (or throw in a fresh banana instead)
1 oz of  Orange Juice
Splash of Pineapple Juice
Cup of crushed Ice

Add Spiced Rum, blackberry liqueur, crème de banana liqueur, orange juice, pineapple juice and crushed ice in a blender. Blend, pour into glass and top with a fresh slice of pineapple!

 You could throw in some Grenadian (which I don’t like) or Passionfruit Cordial (my favorite).
Please drink responsibly and make sure you drink with a friend. the only thing worst than drinking alone is laying on a sunny, sandy beach, rum runner in hand and when the glass is empty you notice you are all alone……
No one likes getting up for a refill. Just bring along the entire pitcher!
