Paradise found… in this here bucket

What do rum, fresh juices, and tropical fruit all have in common? Like you and your friends, they’re better when together.

If there’s one cocktail that continues to dominate the summer beach scene (particularly in Myrtle Beach), it’s the massively delicious rum bucket. You will definitely want to share this baby! Comprised of multiple flavors of rum, pineapple and orange juices, and your favorite island fruits, these concoctions are so huge in flavor they can’t be contained in a mere highball glass. Oh, no. A beach bucket topped with four straws will only suffice for this summer masterpiece.

While a bucket-o-rum may sound like a vacation exclusive, there’s no reason you can’t bring those beach vibes to your own home this summer. Making this mixture is as easy as a day at the beach.

Wanna make it? 

Fill bucket with ice, add all ingredients listed above to your bucket/fishbowl/jar of choice, stir, sip, and party!

Wanna drink it?
