Everything is too 'taste' nowadays.

Smart and savvy entertainers are always looking for cost effective ways to still serve up some of the best things on the planet and that includes what they drink.

For me personally Koolaid proves versatile and cost effective so i love using it as often as i can, whenever i can find it at a great price. I typically stock up!

The premixed sugary version always helps out when one is on a budget or needs something really, really quickly. They are great in individual glasses, pitchers or punch bowls. With or without alcohol, juice, fruit or something chilly added like crushed ice or Sherbet.

Yet, i find Cocktails or mixed drinks are popular. Cocktails with rum are innumerable, but that is the great thing about rum, it's versatility! You can drink it, cook it, bake with it or use it medicinally.

It's your choice!
