Is there ever a bad time to drink rum? It’s been one of my go-to drinks for as long as I can remember. Is it because I’ve always wanted to be a pirate? Probably. Sometimes you need something with a little more pizazz than your typical rum and coke and I can’t say I blame you there! When I get in the mood to be a little more than a swashbuckler, these rum cocktail recipes take out all the guesswork!

Not only does this drink look really cool, it has ginger beer! I really love the colors of this drink, and the name fits accordingly!

I’m a HUGE fan of cherry anything. When I worked at a grocery store in my 20’s, I would hide bags of them in the cooler when they were on sale and eat the entire bag once I got home. This recipe has an added bonus cocktail for you!

You can’t go wrong with a little wine, rum, and a tropical splash. Using tangerine juice will make this cocktail more sweet – and more tart if you use orange juice!
