You know its vacation time, but most plans are on hold and some still fear traveling amid the current coronavirus pandemic. But there is a way to still imagine yourself on an exotic Caribbean vacation sipping on some rum cocktail by a beach shack this Friday night.

The clue is to make yourself some rum cocktails. Why rum? It is because the Caribbean make the best rum and their cocktail mixtures are to-die-for.

From basic rum cocktails to more intricate ones, here are three of my favorites you can try to spice your Friday happy hour with your friends or family be it virtually or at a socially distanced hangout.
