This is medium-bodied. It’s packing more flavors than your typical white rum. We love it in a piña colada. Those make for excellent batch cocktails for parties. But this is a decent summer sipper, too.

Blend all the ingredients. Add a scoop of ice, and blend until it’s smooth. Garnish with citrus wedges/twists and fresh mint.

It’s a good rum to have on hand. Sweet and smooth if you want to sip neat. But it’s ideal for cocktails, too. We like this idea from @bluechairbayrum. It’s a stunning, pink, refreshing cocktail.
