This Hawaiian Sunset Cocktail features pineapple juice, strawberry puree and rum and transports you to the tropics with every delicious sip.
Hawaiian Sunset Cocktail
Multi-platinum singer-songwriter, Kenny Chesney, is coming to my hometown of Indianapolis as part of The Big Revival Tour. His Blue Chair Bay Rum has been named official sponsor of No Shoes Nation. So I figured I’d whip up a tropical cocktail with this new rum line that was inspired by Kenny’s island lifestyle.
I’m a big fan of pineapple and rum drinks and adding some pureed strawberries wasn’t a stretch for my sensibilities. The strawberries have been fragrant and flavorful and the puree aroma was pure bliss. So it was no surprise that adding pineapple juice and a splash of rum would make this Hawaiian Sunset Cocktail beach worthy beverage.
Blue Chair Bay Rum
From the shores of the Caribbean, came the four flavors of Blue Chair Rum—white, coconut, coconut spiced and banana. I selected the white rum for this Hawaiian Sunrise, but would love to swap it out to create a coconut version of this beach ready drink. Doesn’t that sound terrific?
As a bonus to my loyal readers, I have some tour swag to giveaway (now closed). This offer is good for those with US and Canadian mailing addresses only. Good luck!
