3 No-Brainer Rum Cocktails To Get Your Weekend Started — Now!

comments
Spritz
Welcome to the first weekend of summer. And if you’ve left the kitchen because you can’t handle the heat, we've found three spiked solutions to cool you off with a kick thanks to Lola Belle, a new cherry flavored rum.
Using the liquor that you may already have at home — yes, regular rum works here, too! — you can whip up these deliciously mild cocktails that will have you and your guests going back for seconds thirds.
The elderflower-infused spritzer is a perfect way to grab a sunlit libation without wreaking havoc on the rest of your day. On the other hand, for those who prefer classics, the Nueva York takes the quintessential Manhattan and invites a bit of summer using Artichoke Amaro. Finally, you really can’t go wrong with a glass of everyone’s beloved Sangria. Best of all, with only four ingredients each, these cocktails leave the mixology-impaired (us included) with no reason to fear the shaker.
