This is a great recipe for a hot summer’s day.  The ice is refreshing and the rum gives it a bit of a kick.  You will need a blender to crush the ice, or you can use a stick blender.  If you are a really keen drink maker you might have an electric ice crusher which would also work well.

As with any drink recipe it pays to experiment a bit depending on your taste and use the recipe below as a guide.  You could add more or less rum, and even add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to give it some extra tang. This recipe uses frozen lemonade concentrate which is available from Walmart.

Approx ½ cup of coconut rum – add more or less according to your taste

Lemon juice – optional if you like some extra tang
