Cruzan Black and Blue Cocktail
Wanna spice up an otherwise fruity drink? Try adding a splash of Cruzan Black Strap to your favorite cocktail. Cruzan Black Strap Rum is touted as being a cleaner, and less heavy Navy Rum. Think of it as a molasses flavored dark rum. I wouldn’t recommend using it as the base for most cocktails, but just a touch adds a nice layer of depth and richness without commandeering a drink’s profile. It’s a perfect addition when used in mai tais and punch based drinks. Here’s a recipe that’s got a fresh and bright island taste with a smooth, and rich finish.
1 1/4 oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum
3/4 oz Stoli Blueberry Vodka
1/2 oz Creme de bannana
2 Lime wedges
4 drops Angostura Bitters
Preparation: Combine all ingredients and garnish with lime wedges.
