As summer approaches, I get more and more excited. I absolutely can’t wait to lounge around by the pool, go swimming, wear cute clothes and to drink fruity cocktails. Flashback to a few weeks ago when my best friend sent me a TikTok one day of these two girls making rum buckets on the beach. Just like that, after seeing this video, our summer plans were flashing before our eyes. Ansley Seal (@anslittt on TikTok) has been posting so many delicious rum bucket recipes that we’re so excited to try out this summer! Let’s take a look!

Instead of the beach, Ansley & Erika were at the pool concocting this incredible recipe. Honestly, this is my favorite recipe out of theirs (so far!) I’m absolutely obsessed with sangria, especially in the summer! Here is what you need to create a white peach sangria bucket:


  • Frozen strawberries
  • Canned peaches
  • Diced apples
  • Fresh orange (squeezed)
  • Fresh lime (squeezed)
  • Peach simple syrup
  • Brandy
  • Triple sec
  • Simply peach juice
  • Pinot Grigio
  • Ice

These are just a few of the incredible recipes that Ansley and Erika have come up with but don’t worry, they are working on more! Make sure to follow them on TikTok to see what else they come up with! One of my favorite parts about these bucket recipes is that you can scale them or change them up to make them however you want! Want less alcohol? Go for it! Want to add in a different drink or a different type of fruit? Go for it! As Ansley commented in her video “There’s no wrong way to drink buckets!”

Is anybody else excited to try out these rum bucket recipes this summer, or is that just me? Do you have any other rum bucket recipes to share? Let us know in the comments below!
