Patio season has officially arrived, and for many people this means that it's the perfect time for cool summer cocktails. To help Canadians start their summer season off right, Trend Hunter talked to Juan Coronado of Bacardi about some of his favorite summer drinks.
Coronado explains that his favorite way to mix summer drinks starts with the coconut. Coronado begins with a whole coconut, a bottle of Bacardi Superior, crushed ice and a parasol. He then cracks the coconut open with a machete so that the tropical fruit can be used as a vessel for his drink. After extracting the water from the coconut, he adds crushed ice and two ounces of Bacardi Superior -- the number one rum for cocktails in the world -- to the shell. The coconut water is poured back into the shell and a parasol is added for decoration. The result is a cool, tropical drink that tastes just as good as it looks.
