Thirsty Thursday ~ Parrot Bay Sunset

What better way to enjoy a sunset than with a refreshing cocktail?  And what better cocktail than a Parrot Bay Sunset.... oh yeah!


Living in South Florida, we have great sunsets all year round.  Now that it's summer, the kids want to stay outside longer.  That's just one more chance for me to enjoy a cocktail.



Parrot Bay Sunset
The picture would have been kick ass with a sunset behind it!


Ingredients:
1 1/2 oz of Captain Morgan Parrot Bay coconut rum
4oz orange juice
1oz cranberry juice


Directions:
Combine all ingredients in shaker.  Serve on ice. 
Garnish with an orange wedge.  (I didn't have one, so I garnished with a lime.)


Easy enough?  And I can't express in words how yummy this cocktail is!!  Perfect for those quick summer gatherings or just when you want something a little more fruity. 



Have you tried the Citrusy Champagne Sangria?
