To make a Rum Rickey Cocktail, combine 1/2 ounce lime juice and 1 1/2 ounces rum into an ice-filled highball glass. Add 4 ounces club soda, stir, and garnish with a lime wedge.
To make two Mojito Perfectos, begin by placing 3 mint leaves and 2 teaspoons of sugar into the bottoms of 2 tumblers. Stir the sugar and mint together, using the back of the spoon to crush the mint leaves and release their flavor. Add 3 lime wedges to each glass, and continue stirring vigorously. Next, pour 1 1/2 ounces of lemon-flavored rum into each glass. Add ice and carbonated water to fill the tumblers, and serve.
Prepare two Blueberry-Rum Milkshakes by first combining 1 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup sugar and the seeds of half a vanilla bean in a bowl. Let the mixture sit at room temperature for 10 minutes, mash with a fork, and then let sit for an additional 10 minutes. Place this mixture in a blender, along with 11 ounces of premium vanilla ice cream, 1/4 cup dark rum and 1/2 cup whole milk. Blend until smooth, and divide between two glasses.
