Without much explanation needed, here is my pick to best celebrate National Rum Day today, August 16.
It’s pretty simple, really: grab some of your favorite white rum, Hiram Walker’s Raspberry Schnapps, and a little lemon-lime fizz – you’re all set for a day of playing hooky and celebrating on the warm, sunlit beach!
Too idealistic? Perhaps an evening with one of these bad boys on the patio deck with the grill going in the backdrop is way to best enjoy this perfect summer cocktail. Here’s your recipe for the perfect Summer State of Mind:
Summer State of Mind:
- 2 parts Malibu® Coconut Rum
- 1 part Hiram Walker® Raspberry Schnapps
- Juice of one Lime
- Top with Lemon-lime Soda
Build first three ingredients over ice in a Collins glass and top with lemon-lime soda. Optional garnish with a lime peel.
