RECIPE: FRIDAY NIGHT SUMMER COCKTAILRUM PUNCH

Yes, I’m a Scotch whisky drinker, but that doesn’t mean I’m a snob; I love me a good fruity drink from time to time as well.  When the heat of summer gets pounding down on us, and there happens to be a cottage or pool full of wicked-cool water, nothing beats sitting on the deck sipping fruity liquor drinks.  Rum has always been my favorite for the fruity drinks.  This is a fun recipe I get behind every chance I can. – FATS
