It's World Rum Day, and we're celebrating it with this fantastic creation by mixologist Heather Wibbels, aka The Cocktail Contessa. (Not that we needed another reason to celebrate summer with a cocktail in hand, but we'll take it!)
This drink starts sweet, but as the Cranberry Rose Mixicles melt, they add tartness . . . and personality. We used a light rum (also referred to as white or silver rum) for this drink, but just like Ms. Cranky Pants, you do you.
