A new flavored expression from Cruzan Rum of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands offers a delightful combination of ripe blueberries and lemonade to add the essence of fresh fruit to summer cocktails and punch recipes.
Like all Cruzan rums, Cruzan Blueberry Lemonade Rum is crafted by Cruzan Master Distiller Gary Nelthropp, whose family has been making rum on the island of St. Croix for generations.
It is made from natural ingredients including cane molasses and tropical rainwater, using a unique five-column distillation process, staying true to Cruzan’s goal of creating the cleanest-tasting, highest-quality rum on the market.
Here’s a recipe that features the new rum — perfect for sharing with friends while celebrating the summer season. Create singular cocktails or make a punch for your next gathering. This simple 8/3 ratio of rum to grapefruit juice is easy and delicious.
