Cruzan Blueberry Lemonade Rum Colada Recipe
2 parts Cruzan® Blueberry Lemonade Rum
1 part Coco® Lopez Cream of Coconut
1 part Fresh Lemon Juice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a stemmed Hurricane glass and garnish with lemon zest.
Lucky me, Cruzan sent me a bottle of rum to try the blueberry lemonade flavor for myself and I have to tell you it is delicious. I immediately opened the bottle and gave it a try. It is EXCELLENT. I was enjoying a glass of iced tea and decided to just add a shot plus a little of the blueberry lemonade rum to my iced tea. Now that is a way to make the afternoon a lot more relaxing.
The Cruzan rum website has so many delicious recipes like the Cruzan® Blueberry Lemonade Rum Lush. It is simply lemonade, Cruzan blueberry lemonade rum and a splash of lemon lime soda. Delish! Im also going to mix up a Cruzan Blue Velvet which is blueberry lemonade rum, raspberry rum, sour mix and cranberry juice. I have some pineapple rum here that might be quite delicious in the Blue Velvet cocktail as well. Hmmm, I’ll have to give that a try.
Regardless of which cocktail you try, give a toast to National Rum Day!!!
