We all crave rum when summer comes around. There are so many refreshing recipes that you can throw together super easily, and that's where Pusser's Rum takes things to the next level.

Pusser's Rum is the only rum made with the exact accordance with the specifications made by the Royal Navy before it was last discontinued on July 31st, 1970 for the daily rations.

Because our rum is aged for a minimum of 3 years, it has a smooth and full-body taste that you can't pass up. Read along to find five easy rum cocktails you can make this summer.

1. Belladonna

This fruity and refreshing summertime cocktail is a very simple recipe using only five common ingredients, all using equal parts. This means it doesn't take a whole lot of effort to get it right.

You can use your Pusser's Rum to pour two parts, and then mix in orange, pineapple, and cranberry juices. Then all you need is a tall glass and some sunshine to enjoy.

2. Planter's Punch

This drink is a classic, first shown in a 1909 edition of the New York Times. The key to this rum cocktail is to really put your own spin on it.

  • 1 1/2 ounces Pusser's Rum
  • 1/4 ounce grenadine
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 ounces club soda (not required)

This drink can be a little strong, so feel free to add in some club soda or play around with the different fruit juices instead of adding in grenadine to ease the ABV
