Red Rum

 

Red Rum
 
Red Rum (or as some prefer... Redrum) is a term (murder spelled backwards) that has been used many times in pop culture.  Notably, its most famous use was a plot device in the Stephen King classic, The Shinning.  As a cocktail, it is a rather basic, but certainly tasty drink that features Rum, Grenadine, and Citrus.  The Citrus takes the sweet edge off of the drink, and helps to give this cocktail a little bite.  We hope that you enjoy our featured cocktail... Red Rum.  Cheers!
