I have some delicious summer cocktail recipes for you from Cruzan Rum. I recently had a chance to sample some of the flavored Cruzan Rums.
Cruzan fruit flavors are all natural and flavored with cane sugar. They make excellent variations on cocktails, dessert toppings and food recipes that call for rich fruit flavors. Their flavors include black cherry, citrus, coconut, mango, pineapple, raspberry, vanilla, guava.
I got to try the pineapple, and the coconut, they were both yummy. I mixed up a Pina Colada, it was fabulous after I spent the afternoon outside mowing.
Cruzan sent me some recipes to share, including a twist combining the Pina Colada with a Martini.
Cruzan Mango Mojito
1 part Cruzan Mango Rum
4 chunks of fresh mango
A dash of fresh lime juice

4-6 mint leaves
Muddle mint and mango chunks with simple syrup in a tall glass. Add lime juice, Cruzan Mango Rum and ice. Stir and top with club soda. Garnish with a mint sprig.
Cruzan Bay Breeze

Pour Cruzan Estate Light Rum over ice in a rocks or long drink glass. Fill with pineapple juice and cranberry juice. Squeeze a lime wedge over and drop in.
Cruzan Pina Colada Martini

Combine the Cruzan Rums together into a mixing glass with ice and add a splash of pineapple juice. Stir and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a pineapple wedge.
I might have to give the Pina Colada Martini a try this weekend.
