How about cooling down with some sweet strawberries, blueberries, and a shot of rum this summer? For this recipe, all you need to do is mix the luscious fruit with your own version of a shot of rum.


1 quart fresh strawberries, rinsed, hulled & quartered
8 ounces fresh blueberries, rinsed
2 to 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/3 cup Rum
Fresh mint leaves (for garnish)

In a serving bowl, mix all ingredients together and serve immediately.

Alternatively, chill up 4 hours and then serve.
