Celebrate the Beautiful Weather Philadelphia is Having with This Caribbean Inspired Cocktail
The Time is Now to Break Out the Rum…..It’s National Rum Day Today!
Rum is usually not my drink of choice unless I am somewhere near the Caribbean or sparkling blue waters. As I live in Philadelphia this luxury is few & far between. However, I have heard the weather is supposed to be gorgeous here & at the shore this weekend so we can pretend, can’t we?
Bonus….this is chock full of ingredients that are said to be antioxidant rich…so I am going to go out on a limb & declare this a “healthy” cocktail. Just to be clear….I am not a nutritionist & this is clearly tongue in cheek.
Blue Pom Fizz
Handful of blueberries
Handful of mint
A couple of teaspoons of sugar (in the raw if you have it)
1 c. light golden rum (I used 10 Cane)
1/2 c. Cointreau
1 c. Pomegranate juice
Stir together. Fill a glass with ice, pour the mixture above until halfway full & top with club soda. Garnish with blueberries & mint leaves.
