Vampire's Dream

The only thing scary about this cocktail is how much you might want a second glass. Or a third.

You start with rum, add equal parts cranberry and pineapple juice, and top it off with a splash of grenadine, a blood-red pomegranate syrup that intensifies the color of the cocktail.

Sweet and fruity, with just the right amount of rum kick, this cocktail makes for some easy sippin’.

Just be sure to keep your neck covered.

Or not.
