Well summer is here and that means it’s cocktail season!  I had some friends over to try out BACARDI® Mixers and man are they awesome!  BACARDI® Mixers created a personalized cocktail for me based off a survey I answered for them.  The result….the Lime Lantern Daiquiri!   This cocktail is sure to take center stage at any party.  A lime half is inverted creating a lime bowl for some BACARDI® 151 to rest in.  Light it up and let the party begin!


I don’t know how they figured this all out {very scientifically, I’m sure} but those folks at BACARDI® Mixers nailed it with this cocktail!  Made with lots of fresh watermelon, lime juice, and BACARDI® Mixers Strawberry Daiquiri Mix – this cocktail is bursting with fresh, fruity flavor.  My friends were pretty impressed as well.  I heard comments like:

“This is dangerously good!”

“Just give me a straw and a pitcher!”

“What a perfect drink!  Slightly sweet and tons of flavor!”

Now you can’t have a party without some yummy food and party favors right?  BACARDI® Mixers sent me all kinds of fun stuff for my guests: visors, muddlers, recipe booklets and even coupons so they can recreate this cocktail at home.  I served up a balsamic watermelon salad, fresh fruit, cookies, brownies, and veggie crescent bites.  Everything was delish!  I absolutely loved how easy it was to create unique and creative cocktails for my friends using BACARDI® Mixers.   The flavors are so fresh and really made my job as a hostess so much easier.


We had an awesome party and tried out some other cocktail recipes – so yummy and SO easy with the BACARDI® Mixers.  Just put the ingredients in the blenders and zip! Drink up!  I love that BACARDI® Mixers are made with real fruit juice – they sure taste fresher than the shelf-stable mixers!  I’ve got my freezer stocked with all the yjmmy flavors so I can whip up amazing cocktails whenever the mood strikes or friends stop by.

Now I know you are all wanting the recipe for this ridiculously awesome cocktail so here it is:

Lime Lantern Daiquiri
Serves 6.
  • 1 can frozen BACARDI® Mixers Strawberry Daiquiri Mix
  • 1 cup BACARDI® Gold
  • 1½ cups cubed watermelon
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 4 cups of ice
  • 3 limes for garnishes
  • 6 tsp BACARDI® 151
  1. Cut 3 limes in half. Use a citrus press to juice the limes. Reserve the lime shells and juice.
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender EXCEPT for the garnishes and blend on high for approximately 20 seconds or until smooth.
  3. Pour into six cocktail or martini glasses.
  4. Take the lime shells and push them inside out to create a "lime bowl".
  5. Float each shell in the center of the glass being careful to keep the lime above the cocktail.
  6. Add 1 tsp of BACARDI® 151 to the "lime bowl" and use a long-stemmed lighter to ignite the rum.
  7. Dimming the lights will help with the effect.
  8. Make sure flames have been extinguished before drinking.
  9. Enjoy!

    Health & medication restrictions wont allow the alcohol so I was wondering if this drink could taste good without the alcohol?
