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.

Enjoy!
