Cheers to Rum!

Thanks to its qualities and widespread fame, National Rum Day in the United States has turned into an international celebration each year on August 16th. Its origins are in the Canary Islands and the Caribbean, although its production has spread to all latitudes of the globe, including Florida. While we certainly don’t need a holiday to enjoy a cocktail or two, this is definitely a holiday we can get behind. Whether you stay home and celebrate National Rum Day with our fabulous Rum Cocktail recipes or you, go out and enjoy the finest rum cocktails crafted by the best mixologists in Miami, remember always to drink responsibly and don’t drink and drive.
