White rum goes hand in hand with fruit flavors. There is no combination that goes together better. Which is exactly why the refreshingly smooth taste of a high quality rum and the lemon-lime bite of Sprite makes such a perfect cocktail.
What is a Rum and Sprite?
The tradition of soft drinks as a mixer for liquor goes back for what seems like forever. Maybe its the sweet flavor. Maybe its the fizzy nature of the carbonation. Whatever it is, they blend together perfectly.
If Rum isn’t your favorite, there are several other Sprite based cocktails. Some of our favorites are the Vodka and Sprite, Gin and Sprite, and Tequila and Sprite.
This recipe is one of the quickest and easiest drinks you can make. That makes it the perfect companion for any meal and occasion. Add this to your weekend plans or kick back at the end of a long work day
Other Soft Drink Mixers
Sprite isn’t the only soft drink that goes well in a cocktail. Ginger Ale, Coca-Cola (or Pepsi, if that’s your thing), or even Root Beer. Some of our favorite soft drink based drinks are the Rum and Coke, Jack and Coke, Whiskey and Root Beer aka Lynchburg Beer, and the Vodka and Sprite.

Jazz It Up
As we stated at the beginning, rum goes well with fruit. That’s fresh fruit, fruit juice, or even fruit flavored candy. Consider adding something extra to your drink and give it a little something extra.
