After one sip, you won’t know which way to move the clock.

Spring forward Fall back, or is it Spring back Fall forward…I can never get it right. Today is the day we change our clocks for Daylight Savings Time. Is it the end of the Daylight Savings or the beginning? Another thing I can’t figure out. That’s why I rely on adults who are smarter than I to tell me what to do with my clocks on this day. My time management skills are a joke.

I was sent this Boat Drinks recipe and thought it would be perfect for a day like today, it’s called the Cruzan Carpe Diem. If you’re Latin is a little rusty it means “Seize The Day”…with Cruzan. After drinking a couple of these I’m sure your time management skills are going to resemble mine, but who cares, we have more sunlight in our days now. More time to spend outside on the beach.

The Cruzan Carpe Diem is a blend of fruit juice, carbonation and rum that will put your “seize the day” butt in gear now that we’ve magically lost an hour of your day. Or is gained? EEEERRRRR.  But don’t despair, this Boat Drink will make you forget your clock-lag in no time. And if that doesn’t work, try stirring the drink counterclockwise and watch as the colors swirl together like a timewarp, maybe it will help you get those 60 minutes back. Sort of like jumping in Emmit Brown’s Delorean…but with rum!
