After one sip, you’ll be dancing an Irish jig.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Castaways! I’m not afraid to follow the crowds and post a cliché story about something green. After all, I think there’s some Irish in me someplace…at least that’s what I was told when I was a wee lad.

To my knowledge there is no green rum on the market. There’s might be some hints of Key Lime, but nothing that will make a splash on St. Patrick’s day. And for the record, if your rum is green…run.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t concoct a green drink with some juices and rum. For this St. Patrick’s Day, let’s go with the Cruzan Emerald Daiquiri. Of course it has Midori in it. Of course it has lime juice. Of course it’s a cliché. But as long as we are having a good time, who cares right?!

Cruzan Emerald Daiquiri


  • 1 part Cruzan Aged Light Rum
  • 1 part Midori Melon Liqueur
  • 1 Lime, juiced
  • Melon Balls or Lime Wheels

Mixing Instructions: Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass with an optional sugared rim. Garnish with a melon ball and/or lime wheel on the rim. Raise glass and toast.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!

Be safe and have a damn good time.
