Fun in the sun is often intertwined with entertaining. Backyard parties, barbecues, seaside picnics, and other events are made even more memorable with the backdrop of beautiful, warm weather.

When the temperature gets a little hot under the collar, a delicious and refreshing drink can cool you down. Here’s a cocktail you’ll certainly want to keep on your summer recipe list.

• 2 parts cranberry juice
• 1 part coconut-flavored rum
• 1 part seltzer water
• Crushed ice
• Fresh fruit for garnish

Blend ice, cranberry juice and rum together, until frosty. Pour into a glass and add the seltzer for a little fizz. Garnish the glass with a slice of orange or a few fresh cranberries
