ROCKET POP

This fun, frozen cocktail pays homage to the summer-staple red, white, and blue popsicle of the same name. It requires some preparation ahead of time, but is worth the wait!

INGREDIENTS:

10 oz. Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum, divided
4 oz. Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum Cream
16 oz. Blue raspberry lemonade, frozen in ice cube trays
16 oz. Red Gatorade, frozen in ice cube trays
¼ c. Lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 oz. Simple syrup
1 c. Ice

CRAFT:

1. Add frozen Gatorade cubes and 3 oz. Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum to blender, and blend until smooth.
2. Divide evenly among four hurricane glasses, filling each one about ⅓ of the way. Set glasses aside*.
3. Add 4 oz. Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum, 4 oz. Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum Cream, lime juice, simple syrup, and ice to blender, and blend until smooth.
4. Divide evenly among the four glasses, creating a white layer over the red — at this point, glasses should be ⅔ of the way full.  Set glasses aside.
5. Add frozen blue raspberry lemonade cubes and remaining 3 oz. Hard Truth Toasted Coconut Rum to blender, and blend until smooth.
6. Divide evenly among the four glasses, filling the remainder while creating a blue layer over the white.
7. Add a straw to each drink, and serve.

*To prevent melting, you can place glasses in freezer between steps.
