In honor of those founding fathersâ€™ stand for freedoms from tyranny, weâ€™re going to feature Constitutional cocktails for 2 weeks instead of 1.
We’re going short and sweet without any preamble this week! Courtesy of our friends at Cruzan, today’s cocktail features two of their rums because, hey, twice the rum, twice the fun, right?
CruzanÂ® Independence Sparkler
1 half of a Lime, cut into quarters
6 Basil leaves
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 oz CruzanÂ® Strawberry Rum
1 oz CruzanÂ® Aged Light Rum
Method: Muddle lime and basil with sugar in a tumbler. Add rums and ice, then shake 2 times to mix. Pour into a rocks glass and top with soda. Garnish with 1 basil top and a fanned strawberry slice.
Iâ€™m actually on the road this week, so I appreciate Cruzanâ€™s timely recipe suggestion. And Iâ€™ll be bringing you a review of the Aged and Strawberry rums next week once I get back to my home bar.
