After one sip you’ll be swaying back and forth with the rhythm of the ocean.

I went up to my home town of Kansas City this past weekend. The temperature was unseasonable warm with the highs in the low 50’s and lows in the 30’s. What’s warm to some is not warm to me. This island loving Floridian was cursing the bone-chilling gusts of wind and staying close to his beach girl for warmth.

While it’s good to relive a little “back where I come from,” it was definitely good to retreat back to the lower latitudes of south Florida.

This week’s Boat Drink recipe is just the kind of liquid reminder that will help you remember those warm summer days or it might even inspire you to work on a Caribbean escape plan. It’s called the Cruzan Blue Latitude and it’s a fruitiful blast of the tropics that is sure to satisfy those island day dreams…at least for a little while.

Cruzan Blue Latitude

Ingredients:
  • 1 part Cruzan Orange Rum
  • 1 part Blue Curacao
  • 1 part Orange Juice
  • 1 part Lemon-Lime Soda

Mixing Instructions: Pour Cruzan Orange Rum and Blue Curacao in a tall glass over ice. Fill with orange juice and top with lemon-lime soda. Raise glass and toast.

Let me know what you guys think! Oh, wouldn’t the name Blue Latitude make a great name for a boat? Dibs!

Cheers!
