The Wreck

Mmmm, rum

Do you ever feel like rum does not get the attention it deserves? We do. Don't get us wrong, we love whiskey and tequila and gin....well, everything, but rum often seems to be left out when people talk about serious cocktails. 

Obviously, they have not had Pyrat Rum. Coming from the folks behind Patrón, you know it has to be good. And it is. So good in fact, you can drink it right from the bottle. Yeah, we tried.

So while you could (and should) try drinking Pyrat on the rocks, we figured it's getting warm so why not do something a little more refreshing?

Here you go...



cocktail shaker
rocks glass


2 oz Pyrat Rum
1.5 oz fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice
.25 oz simple syrup
lime wedge


Add the rum, juice and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker. Fill it with ice and give it a real quick, light shake (not so much to water it down) before dumping the entire thing into a chilled rocks glass. Squeeze a wedge of lime on top and you're good to go!
