Enough Monkeying Around!

Alright people!! After an extended hiatus following my trip abroad, I’m back with another delicious beverage for you to feast your taste buds on! After all… vacation can’t last forever (unfortunately).

When deciding what to make this week, I realized I haven’t made a rum cocktail yet! While this is most likely due to the fact that my husband won’t drink the stuff so it’s not something we keep stocked in the house, I myself am a definite fan! With summer approaching… some day… when it warms up for more than just a day or two… a beachy beverage felt very appropriate.

And yes, if you are wondering, the drink name does make me sing the Foo Fighters song in my head.


1 1/2 oz light rum
3 oz grapefruit juice
2 dashes orange bitters
Splash of pineapple juice
Maraschino cherry for garnish

Making this one is easy, fill an old fashioned glass with ice, pour everything in, and stir. Straight and to the point leaving you more time to get your drink on!
