In preparation for tomorrow's Independence Day festivities, Sailor Jerry, the iconic Americana spiced rum, has graciously shared with me two summer cocktail recipes perfect for your backyard BBQ. 

For a light, refreshing drink, make the Backyard Tea. Easy to make and great for a group, it can be batched and served as punch so guests can serve themselves -- and you can focus on manning delicious burgers and steaks searing on the grill. 

Back Yard Tea

2 parts Sailor Jerry Rum
1 part iced tea
2 parts lemonade

Glass: highball
Method: Add ingredients to in ice-filled glass and garnish with a lemon wedge.

Made with a spicy combination of ginger beer, pilsner, Tabasco and our beloved Sailor Jerry, the ingredients aptly explain its name The Hellfire. Not for the faint of heart, this cocktail - a place where sweet, spicy, and salty come together harmoniously can also provide a much needed hair of the dog the morning following a successful summer celebration.


1 part Sailor Jerry Rum
2 dashes Tabasco sauce of a fresh lime
1 part ginger beer
Pilsner beer of favourite lager beer

Glass: beer glass
  • Squeeze quarter of a lime into beer glass.
  • Fill with Ice
  • Add Tabasco, Sailor Jerry and ginger beer
  • Top with beer
