Chillax Cocktail for National Relaxation Day

Note: Today’s post is sponsored by Tommy Bahama, but my love for National Relaxation Day is all my own!

National Relaxation Day #SummerOfGo #GoRelax


August 15 is National Relaxation Day. That will be the last day of my vacation and I will be soaking up every last second of it!

One way I like to relax is with friends and maybe having a fun relaxing drink. I wanted to get a chance to make this cocktail myself before sharing it, but I couldn’t find the alcohol I needed at Meijer and I haven’t had a chance to get to the liquor store without kids. (I don’t think they’re even allowed IN the store, but it sure wouldn’t look good walking out of a liquor store with a ton of alcohol and 4 children!)

Chillax Cocktail #SummerofGo #GoRelax

The Chillax Cocktail


  • 1 ½ parts Cruzan® Mango Rum
  • ¾ parts Cruzan® Vanilla Rum
  • 1 part Mango purée
  • 1 part Coco Lopez
  • 1 ½ parts Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice


  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Shake over ice and immediately strain over cube ice.

I LOVE mango drinks, so I’m pretty sure this cocktail would be delicious as well as help me relax. Another way I love to relax is to sit in a hot tub and talk to my friends or husband. I am SO looking forward to this next week on vacation! I couldn’t relax in the hot tub this time last year, because I was pregnant. No boiled baby! 🙂 I would love to be sipping this nice cold mango Chillax while relaxing in the hot tub!
