It’s summer time and what better time than now for a tropical drink to serve your guests or to just enjoy in your own backyard?! I was recently introduced to Don Q Rum and my oh my you can say delicious!
Don Q has a wide variety of rums and this fun concoction uses Don Q Añejo and Don Q 151 Rums. It packs a mean punch, but you can add more pineapple juice if you need to lessen the “trouble”.
Six Generations of the Serrallés family have distilled rum with a steadfast devotion to quality that goes back to 1865. Focusing on sustainability and quality, their rum has won countless awards and is sure to please any crowd.
