We are getting so close to the pool season here in the Midwest.  To help you get in the mood, here is a cocktail that will help you do so.

A rum and brandy combination with some notes of citrus, then sweetened with some grenadine, you will be sure to get in the right mindset and have yourself a cocktail to get good at preparing when the season finally arrives.

Have a great day and enjoy this pre-season treat.  Cheers!
