Life’s a Beach, So Grab a Blue Chair Bay Cocktail

We’ve already told you about Blue Chair Bay,
Kenny Chesney’s line of island-inspired rums that are the perfect accompaniment
for just about any summer activity. (Except for driving, keep safe out there,
friends!) Unlike some other celebrity spirits entrepreneurs, Chesney take an
extremely hands-on approach to his products, down to picking out the colors for
the bottles.

As great as these rums are to sip over ice on a hot day, sometimes you just want a nice breezy cocktail in your hand to enjoy poolside or during an afternoon on the lake. Ace mixologist Monica Gray recently visited Nashville to share some of her favorite recipes, so grab some paper umbrellas and a cocktail shaker and get ready to have a little fun with Blue Chair Bay!

Fill a rocks glass or copper mug with ice.
Pour Blue Chair Bay Spiced Rum over ice and top with ginger beer. Stir until
cold. Garnish with a cinnamon stick if you’re feeling fancy!

When this latest addition to the Blue Chair Bay line was released in February, it immediately chained the spiced rum game. Full of tropical vanilla character and spicy cinnamon notes, Blue Chair Bay Spiced Rum is ideal with cola as part of a Cuba Libre or as part of a mule.

Kenny
says this is his favorite cocktail made with his favorite variety of Blue Chair
Bay. Thanks to the addition of coconut water, this is actually a fairly
low-calorie drink, so you can have more than one without feeling too guilty.
