• Cruzan Rum Drink Ideas

Hey gang, Valkor here. And here on the east coast, it would appear that we’re past the chill front that plagued us the last couple of months, moving on to warmer more comfortable temps. And it’s a good thing too because I was getting tired of all that bundling up. And to help celebrate the spring time that we’re having, not just on this side of the planet but everywhere and any event, we invite you to try out a few recipes from the gang over at Cruzan Rum with a peachy twist; not only do they have a few recipes to share but we’ll have a full review of their Cruzan Peach Rum, which my buddy Alacran has been enjoying these past few days.

About Cruzan (taken from their website): Take a break and enjoy the rum that inspired a whole island of slow & smooth. If you’ve got $8 and some free time to spare while you’re in St. Croix, take a tour of the Cruzan Rum distillery. It’s the only historic distillery that is still producing rum on the island. Creating the world’s smoothest rum (and living up to the Cruzan name and quality standards) takes more than our care and craftsmanship. It takes using the same painstaking process every time, from fermentation to removing any impurities to aging it properly.
