Happy National Rum Day! Despite its fascinating history, rum hasn’t quite experienced the widespread revival in today’s cocktail culture that it truly deserves. If it was up to me, every different type of rum would have it’s own holiday. There’d be singing, dancing, and of course mandatory tastings! Until then, I’ll be honoring my favorite spirit by rounding up a few rum-related links.
