First: think outside the blender. Because though this sugar cane-distilled spirit whips into easy-drinking liquid vacations, it performs well in other lesser-known roles think small, strong, and served up. So whether you're in need of something traditional, tropical or tiki-inspired, allow us to introduce you to your new favorite rum cocktail. If you think champagne should more often be used as a mixer, try an old Cuban. An old Cuban is like the love child between a mojito and a French 75. Sipping out of a coconut? Don't mind if we do.

Cocktails that Taste like Vacation

  1. 1. First: think outside the blender. Because though this sugar cane-distilled spirit whips into easy-drinking liquid vacations, it performs well in other lesser-known roles think small, strong, and served up. So whether you're in need of something traditional, tropical or tiki-inspired, allow us to introduce you to your new favorite rum cocktail. If you think champagne should more often be used as a mixer, try an old Cuban. An old Cuban is like the love child between a mojito and a French 75. Sipping out of a coconut? Don't mind if we do. If you think champagne should more often be used as a mixer, try an old Cuban.If blended drinks are your jam, try the frozen piña colada. It tastes like vacation and its namesake song is about love rekindled through the newspaper.If you want to get lei'd, try a mai tai. Though two men claim creation of this tiki classic, Trader Vic's is the more entertaining tale. Mixed for friends visiting from Tahiti, they took one sip and supposedly exclaimed "Maita'i," the Tahitian word for good. The quintessentail Hawaiian drink tastes of lazy sunny days and soft surf.If you like a gin and tonic, try a rum and tonic. A great way to showcase a dark rum and jean bardet, this drink is a marriage of opposites: sultry island meets proper British fizziness. Perfect for a game of croquet and a linen suit.
