15 White Rum Cocktails You’ll Love

I’ve always been a fan of white rum, especially Malibu and Jagermeister. So when my friend, Paul, told me about a new rum cocktail on the scene, I was intrigued. I was familiar with the original Daiquiri, but this new variation was a little more sophisticated. The Daiquiri white rum is more like a white crème de menthe with a slight hint of citrus. It’s sweet, yet not too sweet, with a hint of green apple. It’s a cocktail that screams summer and makes a great choice for a daytime sipper.
