No drink says tropical island getaway quite like a rum cocktail.
Crafted with the sweet liquor made from sugarcane and its byproducts, rum drinks are best enjoyed while staring out at the sea from the comfort of a beach chair. But if you can't catch a flight to paradise, you can also enjoy them at home.
Most rum cocktails simply require a squeeze of citrus, fresh fruit juices, a little bit of sugar, and a combination of light or dark rum. Throw a slice of fruit on the rim, and maybe a cocktail umbrella, and you’re pretty much good to go.
If you want to transport yourself back to that tropical island of your dreams, without even setting foot on a plane, these are the drinks you should be mixing up at home.
