Sunny Side of the Street
Spiking Capri Sun with white rum is a good start, taking the juice from playtime to happy hour. But we took things a bit further. Funky rhum agricole dries out the cloying sweetness (something we never noticed back in the day), while maraschino liqueur and a splash of lemon juice amplify the hodgepodge of tropical fruit flavors. It’s the best way to revive the flavors of days past without actually having to relive elementary school.
- 1 pouch capri sun
- 1 oz white rum
- .75 oz Rhum
- .25 oz Maraschino
- .5 oz Lemon Juice
- Lemon wedge, for garnish
Cut open the Capri Sun packet horizontally along the top seam. (Don’t worry about leaving a jagged edge, as the drink is served with the attached straw.)
Pour out 2.5 ounces and discard (or take as a shot—you know you want to).
Combine remaining juice with the rest of the liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice, and shake.
Strain back into the open Capri Sun packet and serve with attached straw.
