For this week's Thirsty Thursday, I decided to ask my Facebook
friends what kind of cocktail they wanted. Their answers were overwhelming...
I love rum and I love fruit...so I wanted to make a simply, yet refreshing
fruity cocktail that would work perfectly at an afternoon brunch, an adult shower, or simply
sitting on the patio watching the sun go down.
Luckily, my husband was a bartender in another life, and using ingredients we already
had in the fridge, he whipped up a light & delicious rum punch...which we enjoyed
on the patio :)
1 1/2 ounces Light Rum
1 1/2 ounces Mango Rum
1 1/2 ounces Peach Schnapps
1 Peach, for garnish
Fill a shaker with ice
Add rum, schnapps, equal parts orange juice & pineapple juice, and 1 tablespoon of grenadine
Shake Shake Shake
Pour into a cocktail glass
Add diced peaches and garnish with a peach slice
P.S...the diced peaches are delicious after soaking in your cocktail ,)
