1. Spicy Mai Tai

Mai Tais are classic rum cocktails. Using spiced rum gives the drink an extra kick that's perfect for a day by the pool or even by the fireside dreaming of warmer days.

Making it is simple. For this version, all you have to do is put all of the liquid ingredients into a shaker full of ice. Pour it into your favorite cocktail glass and garnish it with the mint sprig and lime.

For some added flair, add a fun cocktail umbrella!
