Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, and with that comes sunshine, BBQ’s and flavorful cocktails.
Cruzan has a wide variety of naturally flavored rums, such as Coconut, Black Cherry and Mango, which are perfect for warm days on the beach or relaxing on the back deck with friends and family.
Midori, which means “green” in Japanese, gets its fresh melon flavor from the distillation and infusion of two, rare Japanese melons, creating the perfect twist on summertime favorites like the Pina Colada.
