The Cruzan Confusion

While spending a week in St Croix, we were introduced to a rum drink called the Cruzan Confusion. Our wonderful bartender, Dave, at the Divi Carina Resort in St Croix gave us his secret recipe for this wonderful and oh-so-powerful concoction, but we thought we’d check the internet to see if there was another recipe posted. We found a number of sites with the following Cruzan Confusion recipe, and I’ve included Dave’s, for comparison at the end. Let the confusion commence!!

Cruzan Confusion

1 oz Cruzan Mango Rum
1 oz Cruzan Coconut Rum
1 oz Pineapple Juice
