Drink of the Day: Sword Fish Cocktail

August 15, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Since tomorrow is International Rum Day, it would be an injustice for me to chose any other spirit for this weekend’s festivities.  Today’s drink has a couple styles of rum in it that blend in well with the other ingredients, giving you one fine refresher to enjoy in the summer weather months.

A fine combination of white rum and dark rum, to go along with the melon and citrus, gives you a tropical treat while enjoying friends at the outdoor get-together; enhancing each memorable moment with every savory sip.  What better way to celebrate this spirit than with a very balanced, full-flavored, cocktail.

So, without further ado let’s get on with it, shall we?

Cheers!
