Fat Tuesday Rum Runner
It's best with the mix of light and dark rum. But in a pinch, you can use only one type of rum if that's all you have on hand. Using all dark rum is perhaps the better option, but all light rum works OK.

1/2 ozorange liqueur (such as cointreau, triple sec, etc)
1 ozlemon juice
1 ozcranberry juice
1 splashlemon-lime soda (sprite is recommended, but any lemon-lime soda will work)
1lime wheel, for garnish
