Redneck Riviera Sunset

We always like to see what Shaun the Bartender is shaking up over at Your Home with Karie Engels. This drink was inspired by his Caribbean Sunset. We made ours less sweet, replacing the sodas with sparkling water. But it still made for a nice drink to sip (or guzzle) while playing croquet. Now if only we could remember where we put those wickets… (Also Shaun, our apologies for bastardizing the name, but that is where folks in our neck of the woods like to vacation and the Caribbean is pretty hoity-toity.)

Redneck Riviera Sunset

  • 1 1/2 ounces spiced rum
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 1/2 ounces orange juice (fresh squeezed is best)
  • 1/2 ounce grenadine
  • 2 ounces sparkling water

Pour all ingredients in a tall glass with ice. Slosh around to mix. Top with soda water. Repeat.

    What a refreshing shade of reds, oranges and yellows. I bet this concoction would go down smooth on a hot day, even if it was in the Caribbean and not your redneck of the woods! 😉
