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.

Dare we Say a Healthy Cocktail?  Celebrate the Gorgeous Weather in Philadelphia with the Caribbean's Favorite Spirit of Choice
