I can't think of any spirit more associated with summer than Rum. Just the classic rum drinks take you to a place of summer and island paradise. Names such as Mai Tai, Bahama Mama, Daiquiri and Piña Colada give a feeling of swinging in the hammock and taking in the salty sea breeze.
So let's get on with the drink. You will need a tall glass for this one. It can be shaken or just stirred around in your glass, before or after adding ice. The ingredients are easy and few. With everything having equal representation, the alcohol is not overpowering and also makes it easy to mix up a big batch.
Rum Poodle Rum
2 ounces dark rum, my favorite is Goslings Black Seal
2 ounces pineapple juice
2 ounces cranberry juice
Mix or shake. Serve in a tall glass with a lot of ice.

I am going to keep this short. The history and different types of rum is very fascinating, but I'm going to skip that. I hope everyone is having a great summer. If you live in America, the 4th is almost here. I can tell you what the official cocktail is going to be at my house this Independence Day: Rum Poodle Rum.
Take care and stay cool (literally).
