Happy National Rum Day! If you're contending with extreme heat right now (you know, the sticky-hot-humid kind), then allow me to introduce a tasty solution. This rum cocktail, with lemongrass, coconut cream, and blackberry, is served over a big ol' pile of crushed ice. It's a refreshing antidote to these sweltering summer days.

This cocktail consists of a few different pieces, but you can assemble some — like the lemongrass syrup and the blackberry syrup — ahead of time to expedite the process.

With white rum, coconut cream, and orange curaçao, this flavorful cocktail will transport you straight to Maui. The use of a tiki glass is not required, but strongly encouraged.
