Basically a smoothie, this nutrient-packed drink is a good option for the health-conscious, and one of the more appropriate day-drinking options. This drink is not really about the spirit as much as it is basically drinking a boozy popsicle, so any rum that is not spiced or super aged works well. For those who like it strong, add a rum floater on top.
- ⅔ cup frozen strawberries
- 1 ounce lime
- 2 ounces rum
Combine all ingredients in a blender on high until just combined. Pat yourself on the back for being "healthy."
Minimalist rum punch
This classic, which many of us remember from our honeymoon phase with alcohol, is still a potent, fruity mix worth your attention. Just like in the old days, pour a bunch of juice in a (probably Solo) cup, and add rum. Fresh, 100% juices are definitely best, but hey, there's no shame in substituting fruit punch juice product if that's your jam.
