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.
