Labor Day’s right around the corner, which means it’s time to break out the grill for one last hurrah! While the grill’s out, how about whipping up a grilled fruit cocktail to show off your skills? Just throw some fruit on the grill, muddle and serve!

Denizen Rum’s brand mixologist Marshall Altier has created some great cocktails that bring the rum’s rich, full flavors to the forefront:
