A Day at the Beach

Obviously we don’t have an ocean in MN that comes to mind when thinking tropical cocktails, but we have plenty of shoreline and beaches.

Starting with aged rum for this cocktail, we add lime juice, pineapple juice, and ginger juice – then top it with a few ounces of the St. Croix Berries Hard Seltzer which adds carbonation along with the flavors of blackberry, raspberry, and strawberry.


■ 1.5 oz aged rum
■ 1 oz lime juice
■ ¾ oz pineapple Juice
■ ¼ oz ginger juice
■ 1 teaspoon simple syrup

Short shake with ice, strain into two glasses with fresh ice and top with 3 oz St. Croix Berries Hard Seltzer.

Garnish with pineapple fronds.
