Happy Hour: Rum Lime Cooler

Ben didn't ever recover from our Hawaii vacation and is constantly in the kitchen crafting himself a tropical drink! This most recent drink was his own invention for hot summer days when he was craving something citrusy and sweet. I'm not a big rum drinker, but I can even attest to the refreshing nature of this cooler. The flavors works well with just a shot of liquor, making it easier to sip and enjoy more than one! 

I recently read an article on Cup of Jo about the new wave of cocktails - session cocktails! I couldn't agree with that idea more! Intrigued by longer term sipping sessions and lower alcohol content beverages? Start with this one!

You'll need:

1.5 oz golden rum (not spiced!)
1 lime, squeezed + 1 slice for garnish
3 dashes Angostura bitters
Crushed ice

Fill a tom collins glass with crushed ice. In a shaker, add 1 oz of golden rum, squeeze the juice out of one lime (reserve a slice for a garnish), add 3 dashes of bitters. Shake well. Pour over ice and garnish with a lime! Enjoy!
