In over two years of writing the Cocktail Culture blog, I have discovered an ungodly number of nationally and internationally recognized holidays that give reason to celebrating with a cocktail or two at home. What perhaps entertains me the most is, no matter the amount of background research and ‘googling’ and ‘wikipedia-hunting’ I embark on, the stories behind these designated days of celebration seems to go untold.
Tomorrow being National Rum Day seems to be no exception to this rule (though, if you have the inside story, please prove my Internet lurking wrong!). We won’t let that spoil the celebration – here’s one recipe to start the weekday festivities!
- 2 parts Malibu® Rum
- 1 part Hiram Walker® Crème de Strawberry
- 3 parts Pineapple Juice
- 2 parts Lychee Juice
Shake all ingredients hard with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a strawberry slice. (Recipe is for 2 servings)
