Sipping on this cocktail gives me that summer feeling and makes me imagine I'm on a beach somewhere. My kids may or may not be there…
Speaking of beaches, Puerto Rico is known throughout the world for its excellent rum! The noble tradition of producing the most refined and exquisite rums is an art that has been cultivated since 1865 by Destilería Serrallés, the birthplace of Puerto Rican rum.
- 1.5 oz Don Q Gran Anejo Rum
- 1 oz Cranberry Juice
- 1 oz Orange Juice
- 1 oz Lemon-Lime Soda (or Ginger Ale)
- Add the rum, juices, and soda to a lowball glass filled with ice and stir gently to combine. Enjoy immediately!
Our Cranberry Orange Rum Spritzer is perfect for a moms night in, sitting around the backyard with a bonfire, or a holiday party. We always end up at a few holiday parties throughout the season.
This year, I'd love to host something at our own home. I'm pretty sure our family and friends would go for this fun cocktail! Personally, I think a spritzer is perfect for a New Year's Party!
If your parties are family-friendly, like most of ours these days, you can make some kiddie versions of these and leave out the rum. Or maybe you have friends that always seem to be pregnant during the holidays? Make a virgin one of these for the preggo lady, too.
Since I have no new babies in the future for me, I'll be partaking in the grown-up version of our Cranberry Orange Rum Spritzer!
If the beachy mixed drink isn't your thing, you could just sip on your Don Q Gran Añejo neat, on the rocks, or you can substitute it for whiskey in Old Fashioned cocktails.
Gran Añejo rum pairs great with steaks, lamb, prime rib or any grilled meats.
