Now, I'm not much for styling anything, myself, though I love looking at Instas of pretty drinks, so this was a great opportunity to branch out. Cruzan had several different rums available (blueberry lemonade, spiced, and coconut) and I decided to throw back to my college days and use the coconut rum to mix up something I'm calling the "The Curly Coconut Lemonade!"
1 part Cruzan Coconut Rum
a dash of Dole pineapple juice
2 parts lemonade
1 splash of club soda
Though I'm no bartender, it was pretty tasty! I'd say it needed a bit more lemonade (or even lemon juice) to punch it up, but it was a tasty treat for a warm evening!
Cruzan Rum gave us a sneak peak of their products at this event because they've partnered up with Alive Magazine and a bunch of other sponsors to host We Heart STL this coming Friday (5/29)! This bash celebrates the Best of the City winners, and will feature live music, vendors, food, dancing, and all sorts of fun! And I've got 2 GA tickets to give away to one lucky reader! Going to be in the area on Friday and want to join? Shoot me an email with WE HEART STL - GIVEAWAY TIME in the subject line! The winner will be chosen at random at 12pm on Thursday! I can't wait to see you there!
