Enjoy a Travel-Inspired Cocktails for National Rum Day
If you haven’t heard of National Rum Day, then now’s a perfect time to acquaint yourself with it by joining us for a cocktail on August 16th. We’ll share with you the concept behind National Rum Day and give you a few drink suggestions. We hardly need a reason to grab a nice rum cocktail, but this supplies even more motivation.
National Rum Day
So, why do we celebrate National Rum Day?
Well, for one, our country has a pretty long history of enjoying it and rebelling against its prohibition, especially right here in New England. You might recall from your history classes how the British Crown imposed a severe tax on rum, sugar, and molasses with the infamous Sugar Act of 1764. The patriots of those days would have no part of it or any other burdensome taxes and eventually fought the American Revolution in response.
Third Most Popular Spirit
Rum still ranks high among the most popular spirit drinks in the U.S. Whiskey and vodka are the two most popular, but rum occupies a solid third place. It’s one of the most mixable liquors, which is good for several cocktails like daiquiris, pina coladas, rumrunners, and rum and coke.
Also, for what it’s worth, rum is friendly for weight loss efforts. One shot of rum only accounts for about 70 or 80 calories. Rum improves with age when you store it in oak barrels, which is the key to turning a bargain brand into top-shelf quality.
