Mayday, Mayday! SOS, Rihanna! SOS! A small state of emergency has been issued: It’s the first Friday of May and summer time is around the corner! But don’t panic. Take a breath, take a seat at the bar. Forget the small things and order yourself a May Day HEY cocktail today!
A nod to the tropical beaches of the Caribbean, the May Day HEY is an alcoholic beverage featuring beautiful white rum as the centerpiece. Mixed with lime juice to add that citrus punch and mixed with a dash of grenadine, the May Day Hey is a strong reminder to sit back, relax, and let someone else handle the exterior crisis of the world.
HEY! No need to call Mayday or SOS. Just chill and drink a May Day Hey.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 oz white rum
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- ½ oz grenadine
Add ingredients to an ice-filled shaker. Shake. Strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
Enjoy and drink responsibly.
