Congratulations, you made it through yet another working week. You might as well give yourself a pat on the back to celebrate — or better yet, a drink or three. There’s no better time to get started than this week, when you can ring in the weekend with a few rum drinks to celebrate National Rum Day.
We found three perfect rum cocktail recipes to help you enjoy the Florida sunshine while feeling refreshed!
According to legend, Victor Bergeron, aka “Trader Vic”, tested this drink on two friends from Tahiti in 1944. When they tasted it, one of them said “Mai Tai-Roa Aé”, which means “‘Out of this world, the best!” in Tahitian. Thus the name was born.
Use grenadine and bitters for last, drizzling them will produce fun streaks of bright red that ultimately turn the drink a pale red – like watching a tropical sunset. The Hurricane is a bold drink complete of tons of flavor and a hint of bite. Fantastic.
It’s sweet and creamy without having being cloying, thanks to a deep spiciness. Plus, it is pink! Which is a bit ridiculous but nevertheless entertaining and friendly.
