Toady is National Lemonade Day!
Cruzan Rum launched their newest flavor earlier this year, which just so happens to be Blueberry Lemonade! If you’re looking for a little something extra in your lemonade this year, look no further than the below Blueberry-Lemonade rum-based cocktails. With notes of fresh blueberries paired with a citrusy lemon twist, this flavor is ripe with summer flavor, especially for today’s occasion.
We’ve also included a bubbly gin lemonade featuring Q Tonic.
