How About a Rum Smoothie for Dessert?

     Rum for desert, wow what a concept. I have gotten several desert like expressions lately, and I have been playing around with them in the Rum Lab, finding some pretty exciting combinations.  El Dorado has come out with a Golden Rum Cream that is a desert all by itself, but with a little bit of experimenting you can really create some special evening by the pool or on the patio after dinner cocktails using it.

     Using fresh fruits in your dessert cocktails will work very well also. I have had some very good luck playing with strawberry, raspberry, pineapple, grapefruit, and peaches all work very well.  I started out with fresh strawberry and a couple pieces of fresh pineapple and threw them into the blender along with the El Dorado Golden Rum Cream and Brinley's Gold Shipwreck Mango Rum and ended up with a pretty tasty smoothie style dessert cocktail.  These fruit flavors really work well together make this smoothie something special.  This is one of those areas that you can really let your imagination roam and develop some very good things.

     Give this one a try some evening soon, you will really enjoy it's full flavor with all of the fresh fruits and rums that match the quality.
