After one sip, you’ll be cracking nuts high in a Coconut Tree.

This is the month that Kenny Chesney’s new Blue Chair Bay Rum is hitting stores. I’ve seen many excited comments from people that have finally got their hands on the new rum and many comments from those still eagerly waiting. Today I’m going to show you what you can do with the rum. Yes, drink it of course! But let’s mix a little somethin’ somethin’ up shall we.

During the Blue Chair Bay Rum launch event in Orlando I was able to meet the master mixologist Jonathan Pogash. Jonathan is responsible for coming up with the Blue Chair Bay cocktail recipes. Knowing Kenny, I’m sure he was right there helping with the taste testing, making sure each drink is pure island heaven in a glass. After tasting quite a few of them, I’d have to say they were successful.

This week’s cocktail recipe is called the Cinnamon Sun. It’s super simple and damn good. It has only two ingredients, Coconut Water and Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced Rum. I love drinks with Coconut Water in them, it creates such a refreshing taste. The perfect solution to cool down a hot day in the tropical sun. The Coconut Spiced Rum is the perfect flavor to go with the Coconut Water, it gives the simple drink that little burst of flavor so your not overwhelmed by the Coconut water. Then finally you add a spark of cinnamon sugar to the rim of the glass, toss in a mint leaf or two and the Cinnamon Sun is ready for you enjoyment.

I created a short drink video for you guys. Watch as I mix a Cinnamon Sun cocktail on the back bay of Lovers Key. It was a stunningly beautiful day, one I will think about every time I sip on a Cinnamon Sun.
