Could it be? Is summer finally here? If so – it may be time to break out some refreshing summer rum drinks and this one would certainly fit that category. For this recipe, use cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, strawberry puree, cherry juice or grenadine to give the cocktail a light pink hue and delicious taste. Ahhh…such a refreshing summertime cooler!
